Welcome to the first Inspiration Monday of December! What an awesome photo inspiration we have for you this week…check it out…

I love the rich jewel tones in this picture.  This one was really a challenge for me as I wanted to do a Christmas card and normally with colors like this, I would have done an ornament but don’t have any ornament set.

Here’s what I came up with…

I sort of went with some of the colors, and sort of an animal and then the circles that are part of the peacock feathers.  What can I say…I was inspired!

Here’s the details…

  • Soft Sea Foam – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Soft Sea Foam – 3 3/4 x 5, stamp greeting using Blackberry Bliss, add to card front
  • Soft Sea Foam – 2 1/8 x 3 3/4, run through the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder, add to card front
  • Frosted Floral dsp – Blackberry Bliss print – 2″ circle and 1 1/4″ circle
  • Frosted Floral dsp -Old Olive print – 1 3/4″ circle and 1 1/4″ cirlce
  • Silver Glitter – THREE 3/4″ circles, add all the circles to the card front
  • Shimmery Paper – cut out reindeer, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Blackberry Bliss Faceted Dots to finish it off
