Christmas in pastel colors

When I saw the inspiration picture for this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room I fell in love - I always wanted a Christmas tree like that - all soft and pretty - but try it with 2 small kids at home, who want to proudly display their macaroni chains and foamy ornaments :)

SO for now, I just got inspired by them and created this card:

Stamps - Tim Holtz - Mini Holidays
Papers - Pink Paisley (Butterfly garden), Memory Box (sweetbay), shimmery white CS (recollection)
Ink - Color box, Versamark
Other - flowers (Wild Orchid, Prima), clear snowflakes (Heidi Snapp), pearls, Silver embossing powder (Stampendous), light pink lace (pick your plum), scalloped lace, pearls, doily, stickles

I covered the clear snowflakes with Stickles, and embossed the plain white doily with silver EP.

Deconstructed Sketches - sketch
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas - use something more than 6 month old - stamps from last year, papers even older (found at the bottom of my stash)
Crafts and me - non traditional Christmas colors
