The Magic of Christmas

Hello, and the new week welcomes a new challenge in The Shabby Tearoom , and this week I am your host and ask you create a card / project with Pink, Gold, Neutrels, Flowers and Snowflakes!

I've had an idea to make this for a while as a Christmas gift  - it's a box and candle holder -  the house is actually a tealight holder that I've glittered up, so hopefully it will be stylish and functional!
I've used the 'I Heart You' stamp from our sponsor this week, Robyns Fetish Digital Stamps who are giving away 5 digital images to our Winner.


The heart is decorated with a Melissa Frances resin frame {love} and a Fimo cherub that I made (well, a mold did ;) ). I used white acrylic paint on the lid as a base coat and then painted over with some pink Crackle Paint, while the base is covered with sheet music. A doily, snowflake stickers, white bottle brush trees (which I stuck beads onto to represent baubles), tiny presents and a smattering of fake snow finish off the miniture snow scene.
