From the inspiration photo I tried to draw from the colors and the ornaments. I used the retired color Taken With Teal but after looking the photo more I think Bermuda Bay would have been closer but oh well! The patterns from this DSP worked well with the photo and what I envisioned in my head.
I know there is no red in the photo but I liked it against the teal. I originally was just going to emboss the top red portion of the card with the snowflakes but in the end I did the whole panel and I must say, I really like how it came out. It also came out pretty patriotic looking didn't it? LOL That wasn't intended but I sure don't mind it!
My sketch inspiration came from the current sketch at Sunday Stamps.
Make sure you head over to 'Tis The Season and give us a try, we'd love to help you bring a little bit of Christmas into your day :0)
