Classy Cards N Such - Not Too Shabby Christmas

Here is a card I made for Classy Cards N Such.  I wanted to give my card a shabby look so I used scrap burlap that was already laying on my craft table and planned my card around it.  The pine cones were sent to me by a friend who picked them up while she was out for her daily walk.  Aren't they cute?

Thank you for taking a look at my  blog today.

  2. Wonderful Christmas card Shirley! I love your background paper and your touches of burlap and pinecones, so festive! hugs :)

  3. Yup, you can make things any color you want - remember the aluminum Christmas trees?? LOL - I love the way you fashioned your focal point with the bow, burlap and the baby pine cones - looks perfect on that Graphic 45 paper!

  4. Beautiful and elegant! People have been having their Christmas trees sprayed different colors for years. My Great Aunt Marie always had a 10 foot white flocked tree in her living room and smaller color flocked trees throughout the house, i.e., blue, pink, etc.! I like your layout and the burlap is awesome!

  5. This is so beautiful!! I love the papers and the burlap!! The pine cones are fabulous!! Have a great day :)
