Non-traditional Christmas

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps.  This week we have a beautiful inspiration photo for you:
Image may contain: stripes
And here is the card I created:
I was inspired by the colors and a bit by the mosaic pattern.  I started by creating a bokeh background with the pink, purple, teal and darker blue.  Then I used a large circle stamp and a sponge dauber to create the light circles.  Then I stamped my two images on ornament die cuts that were on my bits and pieces stash and finished it off with a pine branch that pulls in the flower vine in the upper left corner of the photo.  I placed the panel on a dark purple card base.

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this photo.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my lift sidebar.

Dies: MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle; Elizabeth Craft Designs "Beautiful Baubles" ornaments and pine branch

Pretty - Pretty - love the mosaic ornament - and another holiday card ready to go in December. I need to get a start on mine. This was difficult challenge for me, but fun to see what everyone has done with it.
