vintage christmas in pink

Yup, a pink vintage-y Christmas creation!
~ Ü~

A slight departure from my usual browns.

This creation is a combo of several challenges. Make My Monday has a vintage/traditional Christmas challenge this week, so that was my starting point. I've used the sketch from Sketch Saturday, and a winter image for Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge. Creative Inspirations wants some stitching, and I've used two colours. A dark brown to frame the main image, and white for the pretty flowery background. 
For embellishments, I've used ribbon, lace, flowers and a banner. The ribbon is white seam binding, which I've aged with antique linen distress ink, and tied a bow for Christmas Inspirations. To finish, I've added swirls, dots and glittery highlights.

Thanks for stopping by!
