Christmas joy

I'm getting back into moodboard challenges... I love how a selection of images and colours can kickstart my mojo!  This one at Sassy Scrappers caught my eye:

We don't decorate our home like this at Christmas, but I immediately thought of the giant decorations that we saw in the city on our recent visit.  I used my new Fancy Pants Christmas papers and also used the sketch on the Fancy Pants blog as the basis of my layout:

I really love how the grey balances the other colours.  I was a bit worried about such busy patterns at first but I love how they came together.  This layout is a bit 'flatter' than my usual layouts but it still has quite a few layers:

I also added stitching:
