Oh Christmas Tree

All righty then.  I'm back home using my own internet connection and relieved to be able to create a real post!  Thanks so much to my OCC teamies for helping me to at least post my sample on time!  This week at Our Creative Corner, Wendy Janson is our hostess and she is challenging us to use a Christmas tree on our project.  I have been wanting to use this sweet Victorian style vintage image and thought this was a great match - even though it only has half a Christmas tree - LOL.  I also included a vintage Christmas music sheet image that I downloaded recently and can't for the life of me remember where.  I tried to research it so I could provide a link and came up empty so if you know where it is from, please let me know!

The flower is one of my shabby crinoline "poinsettias".  I'm not usually big on non-traditional Christmas colors, but I really like the way this card turned out.  The color palette is very pleasing to my eyes.  The DP is some old Basic Grey holiday paper from a couple of years back and I found these vintage style tinsel pipe cleaners in the $1 bin at Jo-Ann's a couple of weeks ago.  The pink crocheted lace is available in my Etsy boutique and the poinsettas can be ordered by sending me an email - see Shabby Crinoline Poinsettias in this post for details.  

Now how about hopping over to Our Creative Corner to see the Christmas trees on the projects of my team mates - sure to be some great inspiration for our challenge this week.

What a wonderful shabby card. I struggle with shabby but I do appreciate all the details and lovely colours. A nice change from Grunge.

Linda, you always add just the perfect amount of shabby-style to your projects and this is no exception. Loving that pink flower (big shocker, right? Haha!) Just a beatiful card full of holiday cheer. Hope you had a great weekend! Hugs! :)

Linda, I am a huge fan of your work! You always seem to put the right everything together! I'm a big non traditional christmas color gal, and I have to say that your use of neutrals, with those pops of pink and silver are just perfect!
I love your style of paper crafting, and your keen eye on use of unconventional items (pipe cleaners, for one).
Have a fabulous week! hugs, sharon
