Wishing You a Sweet Christmas

It's time for a Scandinavian Christmas at The Shabby Tea Room today! Clare is our hostess and she has given us this fabulous inspiration photo to use. So get your shabby on and join us! Our sponsor this week is Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

For my card, I used the Gingerbread House image and colored it with Copics. I really wanted to use just the colors in the inspiration photo so I kept everything red and ivory. I love the bright red snowflake paper which is ledger paper on the reverse side that matches perfectly! I used a Flourishes sentiment and cut a few Spellbinders flourish pieces to peek out from my popped up image. A little ivory grosgrain ribbon and a couple of pearls give it the finishing touch! This one was so much fun to make!
