Another Essentials by Ellen October 2017 Pin Sights Challenge Card

I actually made three cards inspired by this month's EH Pin Sights challenge inspiration board, something I've never done before.

I've always admired cards with one tiny image and lots of white space, so I decided to make one for this challenge.  I was definitely out of my comfort zone and had to resist adding to the card as I thought it was just too plain.  But it has grown on me, so I decided to add it here and to the challenge link-up.  

Again, I was inspired by the picture of the pink Christmas tree on the inspiration board.  It reminds me of a little pink tree my Mom used to put on our bathroom counter every holiday season.  It first appeared in the early 1960's, and I think in the late 1970's my mom took a chisel to that pink tile one day and soon after had it replaced.  She always had a remodel project going on in our family home.
