Muse: Christmas Visions #70

I am trying to get as many holiday cards done as possible ... I have report cards coming up and won't have too much time.  I used this beautiful card as inspiration to make a Christmas card:
I took this card's use of patterned paper and a die cut over at Christmas Visions  as my jumping off point:
I took a piece of patterned paper and made a background, cutting a Memory Box edgers die from white Recollections card stock.
Then I heat embossed Papertrey's Holiday Swoosh in fine detail gold embossing powder.  I popped the white panel up on foam, spending time cutting little slivers to keep the trees up off the card base.  Thanks to Christmas visions for the inspiration!!  Lots more cards to go but now I have one more in my stash.
