Jingle Ants for Christmas

     I love this digital image set from Doodle Pantry called "Jingle Ants" and decided it just HAD to be used!   You can see a photo of the entire set (images, papers and sentiments) at the bottom of this post.

I took my colors from the challenge at Creative Colors;
Deep Red, White, Vintage Green + add glitter.  

Hard as it is to see, the Vintage Green is in the glitter 
and in the word "Jingle" in the sentiment.

     All the dies are from Spellbinders, including the lattice background.  I was so good when making this card -- I dug things out of my stash which I haven't used in ages.  The deep red CS was purchased more than a year ago and the glitter has been in my supplies at least four Christmas seasons!  I was doing a clean up mission this week, finding things I have forgotten, and decided that I really needed to clear out the stash by using some of those things.  Even the bow, one of those I make, has been in the stash for a long while.
