Blessed - CSI #271 - Kaisercraft Silver Bells

Hello there.  The Color Story Inspiration case file 271 is a "cold case"and calls for you to use your older stash in a prominent way.  I just love the soft colour palette of this one and I dug out the Kaisercraft Silver Bells collection that has been untouched in my stash since 2015.  I don't normally scrap themed paper but this one is just perfect for this challenge and for the photo that I used.  The photo was taken on Christmas Eve 2018.  Here is my page:

Supply list:  Patterned paper:  Kaisercraft (Silver Bells); Cardstock:  Bazzil; Letter Stickers:  American Craft (Emma); Chipboard circle:  Blue Fern Studios, Crate Paper (houses); Puffy house:  Crate Paper; Enamel dots:  My Minds Eye, Websters; Die cuts:  Kaisercraft (Silver Bells); Embroidery Floss: DMC Variegated; Embossing Powder: WOW (Metallic Silver); Stickels:  Christmas Red, Tickled Pink, Silver, Turquoise, Frosted Lace.

The case file:
This is how I solved the case:

The Scheme and Scene:  I was inspired by the scene and to use a wreath design and I used colours close to the scheme.

Product clues:  I found older papers that match the palette.  The older papers have a winter theme.  I used decorative borders below my photo.  I used stickles around my embellishments and I used stickles in Frosted Lace to add dots around my page.  The products I used have never been used before.

Design clues:  I created a wreath from things in my stash.  I added stitching around my page.  I updated the look of the die cut pieces by adding stickles to them.

Some close ups:
 I added a border of stitching around my background paper.  The little houses from an older Crate Paper collection was also added because the scene contained little houses.

 I added Stickles to my embellishments on my wreath

 Some layered decorative borders below the photo.

 I love the effect and texture that the enamel dots and stickles dots add to the page.

The alphabet stickers have also been sitting in my stash forever and it was used for the first time.

Here you can see the dimension and the glittery bits.
