Christmas Magic {Paper Issues Free File Free-for-All and Scrap the Girls Challenge}

I love a good challenge, and I found a fun one at Scrap the Girls. This is my page, which I created using the Paper Issues free cut file called Under the Tree.

The challenge at Scrap the Girls was to draw inspiration from one of these dresses. The one on the very bottom right caught my eye, and I drew inspiration from the gathered trees, so I decided to recreate that on my page. I also chose a photo of my friend's daughter all dressed up for a show in a pretty dress.

Here are some details. The colors in the photo were very warm, so I looked for papers with warm tones in my stash and found a bunch of older papers by Making Memories, Cosmo Cricket, and My Mind's Eye that did the trick. I backed the trees and fussy cut some of the poinsettias from one of the papers to add to some of the trees. I found some glittery accents to echo the gold glitter chipboard letters in the title.

The "Christmas" word in the title is from another Paper Issues free cut file called Pines & Needles. I added a little more shine with Heidi Swapp gold Color Shine and Liquitex gold ink, as well as some rhinestones on that celebrate tag.
