Love the Inspiration

Here is a card I made using this photo as inspiration.
I incorporated all the colors: Vanilla,Red, Soft Green, and Gold embossing. I also gave it a feel of the era of the inspiration image. The cardbase with it's stamped background and striped patterned paper reminds me of turn of the century wallpaper. The letters and stamped flourish kind of mimic the delicate leaves of the mistletoe and frothy look of the ribbon. Then of course I picked up the texture of the sleigh in the gold embossed ornaments.

Gosh, my post sounds like I am trying to sell my card! LOL! I know I'm silly, but I hope you still like the card!
