white christmas inspiration challenge

we've got a photo inspiration challenge at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ this fortnight, so we'd love to see which parts of this cozy, christmassy room appeal to the holiday card designer in you. combine as many elements as you'd like, whether it's the color palette, the white tree, the fireplace, the wooden accents... there's loads of ways to take this, and we're excited to see what you will do!

i especially loved the "neutrals + naturals" color palette, so that was my main focus, but i've also got some of the florals and greens from the mantel. with regard to supplies, i was definitely in full-on "vintage goodies" mode as you can see:

i think i've ticked all the categories of vintage with this one: sheet music... (yep!); old postcard... (got it!); cancelled postage... (uh-huh!); text paper and doilies... (check!); there's a little bit of everything i love, all topped off with some plain white flowers that i bought intending to customize with inks and watercolor. and i'm sure i'll do that with most of them, but these particular ones looked pretty good as is, so i just left them natural.

stephanie has a gorgeous card as well, why not hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ for an eyeful of inspiration before you link up your own masterpiece?
