Happy H{ippity} Hop - January 24

This is my card for part 3 of {ippity}'s January 2011 Challenge, check out part 4 and the rest of the Blog Roll for today's hop, here.

I used a new technique I learned on StampTV, here, where you use Spellbinder's Fancy Tags to create a frame.  Needless to say when I saw the inspiration photo, after watching Gina K's tutorial the chandelier from Regal Greetings came to mind.
