what's blue and white and awesome all over?

it's the inspiration photo we are using to build our holiday cards at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ this fortnight of course! see?

you can use any aspect(s) of the picture that you like: from general impressions, such as the colors or the clean lines; to specific details, like the candles, the birch logs, or even that adorable westie! i chose to focus on the palette and the sparkly snowflakes:

background created using colorburst pigment powders in cerulean, ultramarine and indigo; snowflake stencil: tim holtz; copper embossing paste: dreamweaver; ancient sparkly star stamp: psx; snowflake dies: tim holtz/sizzix; snowflake punch: martha stewart; glitter paper: american crafts/pow; watercolor paper: strathmore; cardstock: core'dinations; jewel brads and gems: eyelet outlet; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape

stephanie has approached this challenge in a completely different --and completely FABULOUS-- way, that already has my gears spinning with ideas for next week's card. you really should check it out at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥!
