Traditional Christmas

Hello, sweet friends! My hubby and I moved into our new home and although boxes remain unfinished (including crafty goodies!), I'm grateful for new beginnings and sweet blessings. I will be catching up as soon as I can. Words cannot express how I miss you!

I'm posting on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog today, sharing a festive inspiration. I have an affinity for traditional Christmas colors, so today I have a card in deep reds and emerald greens.♥️
My beautiful blossoms have been trimmed with Glamour Dust for Christmas sparkle.♥️The gorgeous papers are from LemonCraft's Christmas Carols, which are from my sweetest friend Lisa's store.
Nestled amongst the flowers is a Red Bead Berry Spray, which adds the loveliest textures.♥️The reindeer bauble and snowflake chippies are from Wycinanka.
Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day!♥️
