Holiday Sparkle

Hello friends,

Another Christmas card for the new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room. The theme for this fortnight is “Holiday Sparkle” and this week’s winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to spend at the Dies R Us store. What an awesome prize!

I used the lovely shabby pink and silver colors in the photo as inspiration for my card. I just love pink Christmas cards! The Christmas tree is cut with a Memory Box die  and layered the tree on a pink triangle to provide a sturdy base for the “decorations”. I added my favorite pink roses, silver gemstones, stars and cord to create the sparkle on the tree. For the background I used rose paper and a piece of vintage lace. The sentiment is cut with a Paper Smooches Christmas Words die. There are beautiful cards from the design team at The Shabby Tea Room blog and a visit  to see them will be  worthwhile.

I entered my card in the following challenges:
