Inkspirational Card #2

Today is the eve of my hols. Packing done and just managed to get in some inky time before I go.

My card today for the 'leaf' challenge on Casology and for the photo inspiration challenge for Mynnette's DT call (card number 2 of 4!!)
Here is the inspirational photo:

I have been looking at this photo all week and to me it said 'Christmas', red and black, and a large focal centre. So these are the items that I wanted to base my card on. I was browsing through some old cards and found a few from my cousin Lynn that helped me focus my ideas. So here is my CAS card inspired from the elements I wanted to draw out from this photo and my cousin Lynn's old Xmas card (see Lynn, I keep all your cards for future inspiration-so a big thank you!)

And as I am enjoying stamping the inside of my cards at the moment, I went for Xmas stars in blue. I chose  blue as I wanted it to contrast with the front.

So crafting chums, I do have a couple of posts scheduled but will not be crafting for over a week but I intend to blog hop and watch what you guys are creating.
Have fun and see you in a week x
