Merry Monday #278 - Inspiration Photo

Hello friends.  Our hostess this week at Merry Monday is Debbie and she has a FUN inspiration photo to inspire your Christmas cards this week!


Isn't that a GREAT photo with the wreath, the tree, the dog, all the pops of red and gold, the staircase...LOTS to be inspired by here friends.

I came up with a very CAS card using the wreath and colors...


I started with SU!'s Wondrous Wreath and stamped the leaves in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive inks and then stamped the flowers in Real Red ink.  The centers of the flowers have four little dots, so I poked a hole in each dot and then tied real fine gold thread through each flower.  I also added some Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops around the wreath.  Here's a closer up view:


The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I embossed that in gold.  And because I didn't have a stairway stamp or die, but LOVED the dog in the photo, I added a dog to the inside of my card to compensate:


He's all decked out in his red Christmas bow and ready to celebrate!!  So how will YOU interpret this wonderful inspiration photo??  We can't wait to see!  Check out what the rest of the DT came up with for this challenge right HERE, and then play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
