A Happy Christmas

Morning Everyone,

Well it's Monday again, and only 3 more Monday's until Christmas.  I love this time of year but not the shopping... grrrr.  Internet and late night shopping will be my saviours, lol.

Today's card is my LLC DT card and the theme set by Sandy for this week is "Inspired by a Christmas Song".  I have been dying to use the image and matching papers from MayaDesign Vintage Frost Basics, the diecut sheet is just sooooogorgeous.  The song I have chosen to be inspired by is "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas".  Love this christmas song and I think the children in the image surround by snow falling is perfect.

The image, tag and stamps were cut from Vintage Frost Basics Diecut Sheet and I have used 12x 12  20th December, this paper also looks like the snow is falling. The sheet with the minature children on came from the 6x6 paper pad, so glad I have both.  I have used walnut stain ink to distress the edges.

I have used a corner from the Prima Ceiling Ornamental resin pack and added to the right hand corner.  Lots of gorgeous flowers with gesso and diamond dust and string pearls added to the top.  I also added in a pine cone, cut in half.

And have you seen the vintage findings brooches in store. Wow, just look at centre of my large snowflake. Beautiful.

Ooh I do like the vintage look - love the muted red! But oh boy it makes my cards look decidedly naked - try as I may I cannot competed with the Queen of Embellishments!

The first thing that struck me when I saw this card was the colour combination and how well the flower display has been put together to match the colours. Fantastic layering, and the brooch looks as if it was made for this card.
