White Christmas

Quick share today - got to get on making the rest of the order!
This Christmas Roses image is from Just Inklined. I used it quite a bit last Christmas but coloured it with more vibrant colours than this one. I wanted to do a predominantly white card and didn't want colour overload!

So I used the palest promarkers I had for the actual flowers and pale greens for the leaves. I was left with no choice for the red holly berries!!!!

First I tried the image with an embossed snowflake background but the folder I have only has large snowflakes and it was not balanced - so out with the trusty swiss dots and white pearlised card instead.
(I'm sure I can use the snowflake background on something else).

I tried some lace too but ended up with the punched strips instead topped with some organza ribbon and tied a big bow.
Just popped two pearls in the bottom left to finish it off and a wee bit of bling in the flower centres and to highlight the frames.

Challenges -
 Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes (plus a bit of bling if you want)
Craft Your Passion - Bingo - I chose the middle row - Ribbon, Free, Pearls
