Hanging Gifts

Yup, I'm still in Christmas mode at the moment, but today I've used some gorgeous papers which are not really festive, but look kind of 'frosty'!  The beautiful aqua papers are from The Stamp Basket and the are so pretty it seemed such a tragedy to cover them up with 'stuff'!

I kept all the embellies either white or pale blue so they continued the frosty theme, and liberally sprinkled glitter in the snowy areas, as well as some pretty lace and pearls.

I really like this colour scheme for Christmas, and it makes a nice change from traditional reds and greens.

The colour scheme is beautiful Annette. I love the way the lace echoes the frosting of glitter and I hope there are carrots in those parcels or the bunnies are going to be sooo disappointed!! Have a lovely weekend xx
