Colorful Christmas Inspiration

This week's Jingle Belles prompt is filled with inspiration ... we're asking you to create a card inspired by this whimsical BoHo Christmas Scene from Love the Day (you can click through for more pictures of the scene).

So many things to inspire you in this Colorful Christmas photo from @lovetheday … the fun deer head, the pillow, the super-modern Christmas stockings, bottle brush holiday trees, the fun ornaments or even the beaded garland on the tree … just remember to tell us how the photo inspired your holiday card design.

Here is how we were inspired:

Stephanie says, "I couldn't resist taking the inspiration for my first card from that adorable deer hanging over the mantle.  I started by die cutting the largest Waffle Flower Embroidery Hoop Die from bright pink cardstock & one of the papers I made using Gesso, Watercolors and Salt.  Next I added a thin pink Alexandra Renke Rectangle Frame and die cut the scarf from the Impression Obsession Snowman Die from White Felt.  I die cut the retired Essentials by Ellen Prize Stag twice from brown cardstock & then die cut the anglers three more times from the colors in the picture.  Next I decorated the stag head with teal gems. I finished with a sticker sentiment before attaching to a piece of white shiplap designer paper."

Lauren says, "I was inspired by the many shades and textures of white in the room; as well as the colorful, bauble-encrusted tree, which I've interpreted as Eyelet Outlet Round and Heart-Shaped PearlsJewel BradsSnowflake Brads, and Clear Jewels. I've also sort of incorporated the "sketch" of the photo into my card, by placing the tree over towards the right side and the sentiment at about "mantel" height, lol!"

Link your cards right here, by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, February 10th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB-21-03.
