Live & Love Crafts DT - Shabby Christmas

Hi everyone,
I'm here with a Shabby Christmas creation for the LLC Inspirational Blog..

 I love white on white but I find it quite challenging..
This is the theme of this week's challenge at MDUC and I've decided to give it a go..
I've also decided to play with lots of layers and different textures..

I've used a gorgeous sheet of Magnolia paper this time..
The card's shape was made using a GoKreate die..
The Snowflake border is a Tim Holtz die.. I'm sure you recognize it..
The doily is from my stash..

Here's a close up of the gorgeous Magnolia Vintage Angel and the ton of sprays and flowers around him..
I've used almost every kind of flower Sandy stocks..
The Poppies, Carnations, Chrysantemums, Open Roses, Hip Rosebuds, Cherry Blossoms..
There's some gorgeous Lace ''Alençon'' there and the Pearl Lace With Beads but they are almost completely covered with all the other embellies.. 
The Swirl is a Magnoila Doohickey and so is the Snowflake.. I'm not sure you can see it.. It's under all those flowers..

And yes.. Here are some more flowers..
The Lilies, Wild Roses, Cosmos Daisies and even some Frosted Berries..
The new Vintage Wood Bird Cages are amazing..
Mine is covered with Gesso and Crackle Paint and I've added a little bow and two cute Bells on it..
There's another Snowflake under the bunch of flowers and the Angel Wing die..
All the die-cuts are covered with Shabby White Frantage..
The pearls are a must and so are the distressing and stitching on all the paper edges..

Well.. Can you see the lace now? I love it!
An the Pearl String around the image??
The image was cut out with a Spellbinders Oval and the frame under it is a die from Marianne Design..
There's some cheesecloth here and there and some Gesso and Crackle Paint too..
I've used the Frantage around the image too but I've also added some Liquid Applique.. 
The bells are covered with Stickles..

This is Jingle Bell Rudolf from the Winter Wonderland Collection 2013..
The Christmas Background stamp is from the So Jolly & Under The Mistletoe Collection 2009..
They are both stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and then coloured with Distress Inks and reinkers..
I've used just a few colours for this one:
Weathered Wood
Pumice Stone
Tattered Rose
Antique Linen
Walnut Stain
Aged Mahogany
Scattered Straw
Wild Honey
