Colorful Christmas Inspiration

This week we're bringing you a holiday photograph to inspire your card-making. You can take as many (or as few) elements from the photo as you wish. 

Maybe you love the Christmas tree decorated in white with pops of color; that fun vintage sled or wooden reindeer; maybe you've fallen for the fun banners or rainbow of bottle brush trees? There's so much here to love! Just remember to tell us how the photo inspired your holiday card design.

Here's how we were inspired:

Stephanie says, "My initial inspiration were the bottle brush trees in those wonderful colors.  I stamped the tree from Essentials by Ellen Bear Ware 2 five times in the fun color rainbow.  Then my inspiration for the sentiment came from the JOY on the right side of the fireplace and is from Essentials by Ellen Retro Holiday Greetings.  Finally, my wood grain card base was inspired by the flooring."

Lauren says, "I fell in love with that bright white fireplace, bedecked with small white houses and rainbow colored trees. I had some ancient Studio Calico fabric house stickers with exactly the right vibe; and they were the perfect size to pair with punched trees from every bright shade of glitter paper in my collection (which is LOTS lol!). I even found some non-holiday washi tapes to give the feeling of the bunting beneath the mantel, and also anchor my little village.

Link your photo inspired creations right here by 6pm (EDT) on Wednesday, July 29th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB:20:15.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
