Isn't this a beautiful inspiration photo? I wish I was bold enough to have walls that color. And doesn't the white look so fresh and pristine with it? Those pops of green are the perfect accents. Way to go Jingle Belles!
Here is my rendition. I got a chance to open up the roll of birch bark wrapping paper that I bought at Pier 1's after Christmas clearance. I had to laugh when the saleslady said she thought it was the most beautiful gift wrap she had ever seen and she wrapped all her gifts with it. I didn't dare tell her that no gifts would be wrapped with this roll. Oh no. This was to be hoarded to be used on cards and craft projects only. I loved using it as the background here. I used a window box die as my mantel and found a menorah stamp in my stash to add to that mantel. The snowflakes were die cut from royal blue glitter paper. And the sentiment is another die doubled with silver foil and green cardstock. I added a couple other pops of green to the mantle for balance because my first version pictured below was a little too bland.
I tried to take a close up so you could see that the birchbark paper has a texture to it making it all the more yummy.
Okay, time to bop over to the Jingle Belles blog to see all the other lovely blue beauties!
