The sketch at The Paper Players caught my eye because I've had this long "Christmas" die in my not-yet-used stash and I liked how the sketch would showcase it.
The rest of the card was driven by the paper. The die is very dainty so I wanted to keep the paper fairly subtle. I love this older paper pack because although it's subtle, there is a lot of beautiful detail. I replicated elements of that detail in a variety of dies. That's my very favorite thing to do - little groupings of dies!!
Here's the sketch that put it all together for me.
Dies: Dee's Distinctively Pinecone, Impression Obsession Pine Sprigs, Memory Box Floral Sprigs, Alexandra Renke Christmas,
Patterned Paper: Simple Stories Winter Wonderland
