So here is my take on this great theme, but don't forget to hop over to the main challenge blog to see some more wonderful inspiration.
Now you are probably thinking that this in no way could have been inspired by the photo.
However if you look closely at the photo, you will see in the left hand corner a snow man with a red scarf. The sky is a deep blue and there is snow on the roof of the little oldie worldie shop :)
Now I wanted this image to shine for itself, so a WOW card was on the cards so to speak. I also wanted to play with a new addition to my crafting stash. I got an enormous embossing folder would say an 8 x 8 inch at least and just had to for once make an embossed panel that I did not need to play about with to get a full 14.5 cm square piece, I got it from the shop at the Hobby House, see the link in the left hand sidebar. I then reverted to my smaller embossing folders to create the layer for the white ribbon to wrap around. I created a double bow and added some Cheery Lynn Xmas Sentiments.
Here is the Magnolia image coloured in copics with some Snow Tex, stickles and liquid appliqué
