White-Plus-One at Deep Ocean Challenge!

Happy Tuesday, sweet friends! I hope you're having a beautiful week. :o) It's time for a fun new challenge at Deep Ocean Challenge and the theme is White-Plus-One.

I chose pink and white to make a sweet little Christmas tag, which can then be used as an ornament if the recipient so chooses. ♥︎
My papers are from Maja Design's Vintage Frost Basics. Madeleine Lace and Sunflower Pearls from Live & Love Crafts provide a ruffling winter breeze and snowflake seams. ♥︎
I used the beautiful Cheery Lynn Poinsettia Strip for my poinsettia, which is trimmed in Glamour Dust and centered with ice crystals. The snowflakes are also from Cheery Lynn, sparkling in Christmas joy as they flutter down with a sprinkling of pearls. The jingly bells are from Michael's.

Be sure to check out the inspiring creations from my teamies... and I hope you can play along with us! Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a blessed day. :o)
