Jingle Belles Take II - An Orange in Your Stocking

Wouldn't you love to get closer to that tree to see the decorations?  I know I would.  This is, once again, the photo inspiration for this fortnight's Jingle Belle challenge.  

The closest I've come to an out-of-the-box, non-traditional Christmas tree is the skinny, candy apple green, metallic tree we've had for our Merry Fishmas in July.  

I was playing around with some Mermaid Markers in a teal and coral shade and it reminded me of the beach and then I remembered the stamp set I had bought - SU's Beachy Little Christmas.

And this was born. 

A tree kind of like our Merry Fishmas tree (but in very different colors).  You can't really see in the picture, but the shells on the tree and the ornaments have a little Wink of Stella sparkle on them.  

I'm going to head on over to the Jingle Belles blog and check out all the other "orangy" creations.  You can join me by clicking here.  


  1. I love that background. Great card!

  2. How interesting - when you showed the second picture with the background in landscape rather than portrait, I saw fish leaping in the sea. I know, some exotic sea with goldfish! I would LOVE a tree decorated with little seahorses like that. The cluster of shells looks wonderful.

  3. Well I can give you some snow to go along with your tree...we have lots at the moment. More, I think, than we got for most of the winter.

  4. If you click through on our link, you actually can see a close-up ... she used paint samples to create ornaments ... your decorated tree is fantastic with those beachy ornaments ... so glad you joined us at jingle belles.
