Joy To A Pink and Blue World

Retro Cafe Art has the sweetest supplies. How about Christmas, but in pink and blue....not your usual combination but definitely a pretty one. When I grew up we had a silver tinsel tree for awhile and this banner reminds of those shiny days.

To make this beauty, I started with the Cassandra VanCuren Christmas Pink ATC  and her Christmas Pink and Blue collage sheet  to find the little images. I placed them in some pastel slide holders that were covered in polka dots. Each of the flags is decorated, some have pink ribbon, some pink acorn buttons and the center one has a blue crochet snowflake. I sprayed the snowflake with blue ink and sprinkled it with silver glitter.  There's pink and blue Stickles accents too. The sentiment reads "Joy" in sparkly pink letters. The final step was to use white jump rings and the tie on my little flags.

Hope you we the world in pretty colors this week.
Take care, Gerri

  4. I so adore this colour combination, never fails to be sweet.
    A beautiful idea Gerri.

  5. Very pretty, and what's with having to use traditional colors? I just made a purple pumpkin card LOL We had one of those tinsel trees too. I just love the JOY picture.

  6. I love the pink and blue and the frames make it look really special!

  7. gorgeous! I think the cooler tones of the colors you used work really well together.
    I remember two years in a row, while living in England, the boys picked out a white & silver Christmas tree. It was (and still is) their favorite. They were sad when we couldn't bring it home to the states when we moved -- because of the electrical box/transformer.
