Shabby Chic Pink Holiday

Howdy.  I have been fighting with my camera, and daylight, to get some beautiful photos.  And well, I lost.  {frown}
But, I salvaged a sorta good, (not really) photo to share with you.  Let's get to it!

Ok, lets get the recipe.  I used a Pinktini color of solid card stock for the base.  I used my favorite kraft card stock for the matt.   (I just love that color)  And the beautiful pattern paper?  Tilda pattern paper: All That is Spring.  (be still my beating heart.)  I used the blue background floral pattern paper for the top flap and the distressed pink stipe for the bottom flap.  
I added a strip of white cotton eyelet trim, a silver chevron ribbon, and Pink Pirouette seam binding, across the middle of the top flap.  I thought that these trims added to the homespun 'feel' of this project.  I tied a simple bow with the silver chevron ribbon.  I added a large pom pom pink trim.  And a small round pink glass ornament.  I added a silver glittered star, and a hand stamped tag.  The tag reads: let it Snow.  I thought that really expresses the 'feeling' of the winter.  I also like the mix of different textures between the trims, the glitter star, and the softness of the pattern papers.  
Thank you for looking.  I hope to get some half decent photos soon.  As my next arts and craft fair is this Saturday!  Yep!  in a few days!  So, I may be photographing just before the doors open!  Yikes!
