Orange Inspiration is the Name of the Game at the Jingle Belles!!!

Orange you glad it's Christmas at the Jingle Belles Rock challenge. There is an inspiration picture on the blog and who would have thought you could find one with orange in the picture, that being said Orange is not one of my go to colours but for Christmas? never!!! but I managed to find some patterned paper with guess what? Orange in it.  I haven't a clue why I would buy it let alone make sure I had two of them. Here is what I picked out of the inspiration picture to use.

Below you will find the inspiration picture. I chose the white tree, the orange ribbon and green ornaments on the tree, The bakers twine I used is ornage and white striped like the jars on the mantle and the white frame around the tree is picked from the design on the blanket at the bottom of the picture. the window also reminded me of the mantle and the shelves and of course the orange.

Next is a closeup of the tree.

I took some tiny pearls and coloured them with a green copic marker 

finished the inside with a favourite sentiment well the one that was still on my table from the last Christmas card I made lol. 

I'm entering this in:
The Jingle Belles Rock ~~ Orange you glad it's Christmas
