Cool coloured Christmas

This card is inspired by the current photo challenge at Jingle Belles.

I love the cool orange and turquoise sort-of-Moorish patterns on the cushions, and had some papers with the same feel to them, so I die cut squares in three different sizes and fanned them out over the base card. The "platform"  for the tree is bamboo effect paper to reflect those log-bundle tables and the circular embellishments in the corners are inspired by the mirrors.
The Christmas tree is inspired by, erm, the Christmas tree.

I am also sharing this with
