In the papercrafting world there is no shame in copying - it is encouraged (just as long as you credit the original idea). It can be a great way to develop ideas of your own and get your crafting mojo happening.
In this card I have Cased from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue (page 9), I have changed a few of the elements - omitting the ribbons, adding embossing to the banner in Whisper White cardstock, and adding the rhinestone jewels to "Joy".
