First Christmas

Hi!  It's Friday again and time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  This week it's an inspiration photo challenge:

Our sponsor is Bearly Mine Designs
And the prize is £10 gift voucher

We were all given this gorgeous pack of papers from Bearly Mine Designs called Christmas Wishes.  It didn't have the traditional Christmas color scheme, so we had to interpret the photo very creatively. : )  The background of the photo reminded me of a quilt, so created a blocked strip for the bottom of my card and I even pulled out my sewing machine for the stitching!  I also used papers that had stripes and dots like some of the squares in the photo.  Now it's time to hop over to the CSAYL blog and then play along.  I want to see how you are inspired by the photo.
