Tree Dress Avery

 I'm so excited that Christmas soon will be here...and a little terrified that it's closer than I think!  I love all the lights, trees, ornaments, family traditions...It's all part of the Magic.
I love this image from Paper Nest Dolls called Tree Dress Avery and she's helping me get my cards made for the Holidays.  I'm sorry that I couldn't get the lavenders and pinks to show up on this card as well as I wanted to but, her tree dress is so pretty with the pink and lavender ornaments and shimmer with a Wink of Stella clear.  I've been on a Frantage kick lately-hope it doesn't get snow heading our way!  There is a lavender Christmas Sentiment paper in the top half of the card and the bottom is a matching paper in beautiful ornaments of pinks, whites and soft purples.
On the inside is another ornament paper in the series and a stamped sentiment from my stash.  I hope this card will inspire you to start on YOUR cards also and take a trip to the Paper Nest Dolls shop to see all the delightful Holiday / Seasonal images that are available-  Best Wishes!

Pilgrim Girl -Inspiration Card


Hi Everyone!  This is my first card for Paper Nest Dolls and I'm thrilled to death to be joining you Ladies for the Nov. 1st post.  Until then, I'd like to share an inspiration card for you for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday, using Pilgrim Avery!  She was an absolute dream to color up using copics.  I found some "heritage-like" design papers and added some hand-crocheted (HMBM) small flowers in the colors of the card for the corner.  I've been waiting for just the right creation to share them!  With the pearl centers, they are nestled in among the paper flowers and buds.  On the inside, I finished it with the same paper and a stamped Thanksgiving sentiment.  I can't wait to join you in November and am looking forward to using all of Christines' gorgeous images!
