Classic Christmas................PPA148

                                 




The challenge colors at Pals Paper Arts this week are classic Christmas to me so I searched Lesley's Merry Monday Site for a classic sketch to follow.  Then I channeled a bit of Ann Schach and did some spritzing, sponging and pearling.  The result is classic - simple, serene with a touch of elegance.  I'd like to think that's what Christmas is like at my house but classy and elegant just never seems to happen around here!  With 4 dogs and a new baby in the mix this year I think it will be more Dr. Seuss than Martha Stewart!

Linda Love this classice beauty. you channeled Ann beautifully...but you both rock (in my world anyway).

You are too funny...Maybe no elegance but I'm sure Dr. S and Martha have much more fun! Hugs

So cute. I tried to make a card using the colors, but it didn't come out half as nice as yours! I'll have to try again!
