It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas...Inkspirational Challenge #149~Photo Inkspiration

Hello,

Happy December and yes, the countdown of  'sleeps' (which brings me closer to spending time with my two favourite 'elves' - my darling niece and nephew) to Christmas has begun!  I imagine all of you are full-throttle with your preparations...

Hopefully, in the midst of all the festive hustle-and-bustle, you'll find some 'me' time to spend in your crafting zone and join us for Inkspirational Challenge #149, where a sparkly, glitzy photo serves as inspiration.  Aren't those pink and gold bottles of bubbly lovely?


Please be sure to visit my wonderful, talented team; they're interpretations of the image are simply sensational!


Recently, I've taken time to 'finally' play with my Concord & 9th Take A Bough dies (they've been in my NBUS pile since last February!). A couple days back, I shared two tree/card pairings in red and blue/turquoise.  While I had the dies and stamps out, I figured I'd add a pink and gold ensemble to the mix...(the star is gold...shimmery gold...really!)


NOTE: Honoured and thrilled to receive In the Mailbox recognition over at Cards In Envy! Thank you so much, Lisa and Wendi!

The little pail is a couple sizes too big for my sweet tree so I'm on the search for something smaller; something more stable, something 'wood'. Fingers crossed my efforts will prove fruitful, as I'm passing this along to my niece and nephew to give to someone special (maybe Grammy...). Wish I would have started creating these trees way back last February; I'd have a forest of whimsy by now! Need to keep that in mind...making these would be something productive to do when Mr. Mojo goes on vacation *grin*

Turning things over to you.  
Looking forward to seeing your fabulous creativity in the gallery!

  1. wow these trees are stunning-what cool gifts they would make....and such patience needed to make them! Adore the soft ombre pink wash to your card and this is matched perfectly with the white snowflakes x

  2. I've never seen such a tree, great job! This will be a very fun gift to give to someone, I really like the idea! The soft pink hues in your card look wonderful and I also love the crisp snowflakes against the soft bg. Black sentiment adds a lot of contrast too. Enjoy your weekend!
