NOEL 40

Hi there! Seems like this time of year flies by faster than any other don't you think? I took some time to create a few projects featuring pretty Pion Design papers. First up, is a layout showcasing a photo of Meredith and Connor that was taken about 13 years ago. I combined papers from the A Day in May and Days of Winter collections: 
Once the background was created, I embellished with a wooden tree and sentiment which I altered using shimmery and shiny embossing enamel along with a variety of flowers from my stash:
Next up is a card holiday card:
I stamped and embossed a Sophisticated Snowflake which I then layered on top of a variety of pretty Pion Design papers:
For the layout, I joined along with the December Words & Paintery challenge where the theme is Shimmer & Shine:
and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the My Scraps and More Sketches Sketch challenge:
For the card, for color inspiration, I joined along with the card Concept challenge ~ I think this one may fall in the classy and elegant category:
and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the MOJO Monday sketch challenge:

Neutrals are always lovely and with that snowflake you used it's even more lovely. The LO is another beauty. The background looks "simple"( I know it is not!) and that makes the phot and that tree almost pop off. I love it!
