Photo Inspiration at Live & Love Crafts!

Happy September, sparkly friends! It's time for a fun new challenge at Live & Love Crafts and it's a wintry delight. Sandy created a gorgeous Photo Inspiration, which you'll find just below.
Edit: This is also made for the new monthly Deep Ocean Challenge, where Karina has a marvelous Bingo board for inspiration! Please hop on over to see the lovely inspiration from my teamies.

I created this card to coordinate with my tag/ornament from yesterday, as it is for the same person. They look so sweet together. ♥︎
Here is the lovely collage.. she always makes them so beautiful. ♥︎
The winter wonderland inspired me to use Pion Design's Greetings from the North Pole, as it has such gorgeous snowy scenes. It sets the stage for countless avenues of Christmas joy. ♥︎
The moment I saw the tree in the collage, this exquisite Wycinanka Reindeer Bauble chippie came to my heart. I am enamored with it. ♥︎ The reindeer are stunning and the design is both whimsical and elegant. I popped it up above a circle of extra-snowy Pion Snowfall paper and centered it with a Button Etoile. It hangs from a Wycinanka Romance Corner by a pearl string and both chippies are gently dusted with Snow Writer and Glamour Dust.
Sweet trims abound, as I wanted this wrapped up all cozy. :o) Cinnamon sticks rest beneath a Cheery Lynn poinsettia, while my favorite reindeer charm frolics about. The lace border is one of Sandy's newest trims (Regine) and it is lovely. For pops of sparkly Christmas red I added Wine Pudding Pomegranate Apples and sweet pearl stamen.

My card base is made with Spellbinder's Romantic Rectangles and the white crinkle ribbon is from my dear friend Diana. Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a blessed day. :o)
