A Christmas Card...

When Max saw it, he said that it didn't look like a Christmas card at all ! I suppose he doesn't like pastel colours for the festive season but I had to match the soft colours of the beautiful image from Nicecrane Designs ("A Joyful Christmas" Collection)...



Recipe : Papers from Raspberry Road ("Christmas Thyme" Collection) - Clock, Leaves and Frame : Dies from Marianne Design - Big Flower from a local craft shop - Cheese Cloth from Live and Love Crafts - Small Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts - Sentiment from Lisa's Altered Art.

My card will enter the challenges :
- "Anything Goes with Ribbon" with Crafty Ribbons Challenge,
- "Vintage Christmas - Polychromatic" with Crafts Too Challenge You (Colours : Green - Cream - White),
- " Vingage/Shabby and Ribbon" with Bunny Zoe's Crafts
and the challenge "Ribbon or Charm + 3 Marianne Design Items" with Marianne Design Divas.
Happy Crafting !

Perhaps you could add a bit more green to bring out more of that holiday spirit...perhaps a bit of pine die placed around the floral display? Really pretty image. Loved your color matching on those flowers. Nicely done!

Lola said...

Oh no, the image clearly speaks Christmas! I quite enjoy the soft colors, and what a great design.
