A Retro Christmas for TTS47

This week at 'Tis The Season we have an Inspiration Photo and I won't lie, this was a hard one for me. If you've stopped by my blog before and have seen previous Christmas cards you'll know that I am very traditional when it comes to the holidays. I love my red, green and brown for Christmas. That's why we call them challenge blogs though, right? To push us out of our comfort zones and well, this photo does just that for me!

I decided to pull inspiration from the tree and pastel colors. I grabbed the SU stamp Star Tree (retired) and used 4 colors to color it...Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Soft Sky and Pool Party. I then used an oval framelit to cut out the panel and did paper piercing around the edge. My card base is Pink Pirouette and I lightly stamped the snowflakes from the set White Christmas all across the base. I then did a strip of Soft Sky DSP from All is Calm (retired) with a scallop strip of Pool Party going along the bottom. To finish it off I put a strip of white ribbon across the DSP and popped the image panel up with dimensionals over the ribbon and DSP. The sentiment was stamped along the bottom of the card in Pool Party.

Head over to the 'Tis The Season blog to see what the rest of the DT did and then play along with us! I'd love to see how YOU interpret this photo!
