Festive Friday #39 - Inspiration Photo

Good morning! It's time yet again for a Festive Friday challenge and this week is an inspiration photo.
Here's the pic:

Now I was inspired by a whole heap of ideas and it was a process to work out what I was going to create :) I tried to re-create the santa in the fire place scene, I loved the stockings, the 'embossed' fire place and even the ornaments on the mantel. I would walk away from the photo and come back to see what really inspired me and I kept coming back to the potted tree and the pot as it reminded me of some of the pots my Mum had in our garden when I was growing up. So here is my card:

In the end I've kept it fairly clean and simple. I used my 'lovely as a tree' set and stamped and fussy cut three of the pine tree out and I've glued them together down the middle and ruffled the leaves to get some dimension. You cant see it in the photo, but the background is actually scored with squares and the pot I hand cut and I use some dimensionals to give it more depth. My greeting is meant to be like the mantel and it's from 'curly cute'.

So why not join us this week? Go past Nicole's blog and link your creation up to the froggie, we love to see what you create!

Thanks for looking :)
