Well, this was a kind of challenge! Here is my creation :-)
Would you find some parallels between the image and my card?
1 - colors: sand - baby blue - white
2 - shoes: flip-flops vs. wooden "skis"
3 - star vs. snowflakes
4 - sand vs. embossed background - falling snow
5 - split of the image in about 1/3 by sand line with star / snowflake embedded in it
