A photo challenge...

For Serendipity's first October challenge we were given this photo to use as inspiration.  The photo comes from the blog: 3191 Miles Apart.  When I first looked at the image there were lots of things that jumped out at me.  The bright oranges, the way the oranges and nuts are arranged in a row.  But in the end I took my inspiration from a more subtle part of the photo.  The tablecloth.

  I used one of the new stamps just released Snowman Trio (1251H).  I stamped the image with versa mark ink and then used white embossing powder.  Then layered up several colors of cardstock.  Added snowflakes to the corners, some glitter pen, and finally topped the whole thing with a large white bow.  I intend to set this on my entertainment center come winter.  It will make a nice winter accent between all the photos I have there.
