December PSIC #14 - Wishing You a Joyous Season

Wow, Not only has a new month rolled around, it's the last month of the year. I feel like this year just started! I also hate how old this makes me sound! Really wishing I could turn back time!

Well, as stated, it's a brand new month and that means a brand new challenge at Paper Sweeties!  We bring you another photo inspiration to inspire you! It can be the image or the colors! 

Here is what I have to share today! 
I used a sentiment from the newly released set: Make The Season Bright.  I made this card a little shabby by adding white paint to the kraft and ivory gingham check background. I added swirly whirl bling that was laying on my desk. It saved me from putting it away. I am glad it found it's home on this card! :-) Pretty flowers, lace trim, part of a doily, and a pretty double bow with a button embellishment is what completes this card. 

Here is the darling inspiration photograph:
