Merry & Bright

I was shopping yesterday and came across the most adorable little tag pack from Kaiser and in it was this adorable vintage image of two little girls and a sweet little dog looking into a room where a Christmas tree is little with candles. What intrigued me about it was not only the super cute image, but the colors of it. I would never think of using these colors for Christmas, but somehow it works!

I decided to play with it and use it for the JustRite Friday challenge that calls for the colors of Fall...because that's exactly what these, peachy tones, browns and greens! I paired it up with some Basic Grey poinsettia printed green paper and then added another surprise I found...snowflakes on a creamy off white and beige paper. I made my own striped paper using JustRite's Victorian Nested Frames border and stamped it several times onto a piece of plain cardstock. My sentiment comes from the Christmas Nested Sentiments and Verse set and is stamped onto the dp with ColorBox Dark Brown ink.

I got these new Petaloo flowers yesterday too! So beautiful! I added some sheer organdy brown ribbon, a little bit of patterend rubons to the image and a few Queen & Co. pearls. If you look closely, I even added a tiny bit of Flower Soft (who is the sponsor of the JustRite challenge) to the tree where the candles are peeking out from the branches!
