Rustic Christmas

WOW, there is some stunning inspiration photos to be found on the Internet.  Check out these two challenges, The Ribbon Reel and The Shabby Tea Room.

Just look at the gorgeous inspiration photos, I fell in love straight away.

The Ribbon Reel
The Shabby Tea Room

I thought I would combine the two as they both have rustic, elegant and neutral elements in them. 
So here is my card, I went for Christmas again!!!
The Christmas tree has been stamped and embossed in white onto kraft paper along with the greeting which I made into a little flag.  The stamp set is from Annabelle Stamps called Gifted Swirls which is the elegant part of my card.  The rustic would have to be the corrugated card and my twine which I have added some beads.  I have also included one of my favourite things to make, an organza flower.
I also tried to stage my photo so please don't laugh by adding a candle and the beautiful Christmas ornament.  Which I have to confess I have had it hanging up all year as its so pretty.
