Pastel Christmas


I hope you are having a good day!  I can't believe Thanksgiving was already a week ago - time is flying again!  The weather is turning cold here - but I'm still catching site of  birds on the migration path - big groups of Sandhill Cranes whirling overhead (one of my favorite sounds), and groups of Robin stopping by for a dip in my heated bird bath!

The card I've made for today has been inspired by this photo by The Ribbon Reel, this sketch by Retro Sketches, and I'm entering it in at the Cheery Lynn Challenge Blog as well.  I'm just playing for fun so I hope they don't mind!  I think it's fun to mix challenges - sometimes you see an inspiration photo and just don't know where to start and a sketch is the perfect jump start! 

I am so happy I got to use some Washi in this one too!  I think it looks sweet peeking out from under that Cheery Lynn Die. 
Thanks for stopping by and find some time to play! 

Hugs!
Jeanne

Ahh, this is so pretty. I love that pink Christmas tree and that music washi tape is beautiful. Goes so well for any kind of Christmas card. Love all the bling not only on the tree, but the silver swirly on the side. Great card Jeanne.
