Photo inspiration

Hello Everyone,

Eeeek! Where is this time going, and why is it rushing so...?! ;o) I cannot believe it's almost mid-November, and my Christmas projects are still in VERY early stages! As usual, it appears that I am going to have lots of lastminute.com projects made for family and friends... Uh oh... I really need to have more discipline next year (and yes, I say it every December or so, LOL)! The good news is, however, that at least I have quite a few Christmas pressies sorted, and not many more to go, yippee! 

Today's card is a DT project, and this week we were asked to use the below photo as our inspiration. And boy did that picture make me feel all Christmassy! 

I took the golds, the reds, the green branches and the shimmer/lights out of the picture, and - hey presto - the below card got created! I am quite happy with the result. I love that LOTV angel image, pity that it appears to have retired already!

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
LOTV - Merry Christmas 
Love to Create - Anything goes

Hope you join us over at Divas and share your creations inspired by this gorgeous photo. Our sponsor is the fabulous Dies to Die for, so it's certainly worth the try!

Hugs and stay warm (it's freezing in Dublin!),
