Getting A-Head-er on Holiday Cards

We're inspired by our ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ blog header this fortnight, which means you can make a card which involves as many (or as few, lol) of the elements you see here. Maybe you love the deer, or the white-on-white color palette, or the shabby chic vibe or the frame or the pearls or... well, you get the idea, right? 

One thing you absolutely, positively DO NOT have to do is make a card that is a literal interpretation of every single thing in the header. On the other hand, you *could* do that... and I have, lol!!! :)

patterned paper and primed chipboard window frame: prima marketing; vintage sheet music and a doily from my stash; florals: petaloo and ken oliver crafts; pearl bling swirls and snowflake brads: eyelet outlet; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, glue dots, beacon 3-in-1 adhesive

Ok, see, it's a bit unfair this time, actually, because I designed the header, so obviously it's a style that I like and for which I have lots of stuff that works. On the other hand, something I somehow hadn't realized until I was nearly finished, is that the header actually does not have ANY flowers on it. (Srsly... HOW did that even happen?!) But luckily I have corrected that omission with my card, which means I can join the Allsorts "Christmas Flowers" Challenge! and the handsome diecut deer means I'm eligible for My Time to Craft's "Christmas Animals" Challenge, yay!
