Double D...Vintage Is My Christmas Style

Hi to my crafty friends....

Wow, time is flying by and the holidays are upon us.  We are in the Christmas mode already at the Double D and would like to know about your Christmas style...traditional, modern, elegant, all white, vintage.  Whatever it is, we want to see it on your project. 
Our new challenge theme is, "What's Your Christmas Style"?

You could be the winner of a Top Creative badge for your blog or this prize chosen by

Here's my holiday style...Vintage in non-traditional colors.


This 6 x 6 single layer (that's a real challenge for me!) card uses a panel from a Stamperia vintage paper collection in pink and turquoise colors.  I love the serene setting of the softly falling snow. 
I couldn't help myself and had to add a little texture since there was no dimension!  I used micro beads for a few of the flower centers along with a shimmer pen and flocking for the snow.

The panels in this paper collection make for relatively easy construction of elegant cards.

From my stash...
Bazzill Cardstock
CTMH Bashful and Clear Shimmer Brush
