Inspirational Challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks!

Good morning everyone! Happy Thanksgiving to my friends south of the border...enjoy an awesome day/weekend with family and friends sharing gratitude and great food! :)

Are you ready for another fun-filled day with us 4 Crafty Chicks? We've got an inspiration challenge for you this week and it's also the last Thursday of the month and our lovely Tamie is offering up a super great prize, so be sure to click HERE to participate!

I am the hostess this month and I went in search of "just the right" photo for my inspiration. I scoured a lot of websites before coming back to this beauty from Better Homes and Gardens. I took the Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green colors from the photo and ran with those....

I found this wonderful sketch over at The Paper Players and decided it was "perfect" for what I wanted to do....

...and here is my card using Lovely as a Tree as my "boughs" to hang the decorations from:

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Delightful Decorations, Come to Bethlehem; Paper: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green; Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green; Accessories: modern label punch, large oval punch, perfect dots embossing folder, decoration punch, dimensionals, scallop trim border punch, gems, silver thread

My card also qualifies in the following challenges:

Fresh Brewed - "Christmas"
A Spoon Full of Sugar - "anything goes"
Paper Cutz Challenge - Christmas with bling
Stamp and Create - "tis the season"
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club - "Christmas Anything Goes"
