Christmas Past, Christmas Present

It is my turn to host at One Powerful Hour this week.... and my chosen theme is Christmas Past, Christmas Present.  The theme is a play on words, and also for my love of all things vintage.

I created a vintage style Christmas Card, in non-traditional colours.  Tying in with the pink rose, I also created a wired set of olive green glass pearls, with a vintage style clasp, and made a pink organza rose which is stitched on to sit partway up the bead fall (it is not centred from the clasp, so doesn't sit in/on the cleavage, rather closer to the collar-bone, so it is more of a focal point.

What from your Christmases Past, do you incorporate into your Christmas Present? We would love to see how you interpret the challenge theme.... do jump on over to the challenge blog One Powerful Hour, and show us your creations! The only criteria for you to meet is that you create your piece from start to finish in 1 hour. We welcome any form of art ... paper, fabric, mixed media, altered art etc... whatever floats your boat. Add your art to your blog, then post a direct link under the comments section to share with others. And enjoy creating!

Thanks for peepin'!
