Papertrey Ink December Blog Hop

December-inspirationWow--talk about an inspiration photo!  I think I'll be using this over & over, but for today's PTI Blog Hop card I drew from the leaves, flowers, linens & frames as well as shades of white & grey/silver.  I used my new Snowflake Flurries dies to create the 2 layer felt flowers & the centers are Making Memories pearl brads from their wedding collection--I've been wanting to find a way to use them!  The leaves are cut with a Sizzix die & the embossing folder is Cuttlebug.  The frames are made with the PTI Take Three die.  I used a sentiment from the gorgeous new PTI set called Quilled Elegance.  The felt flowers are not such a stark contrast in real life, but couldn't get a better picture.  Hope you get to play along--can't wait to see what everyone comes up with today!  Simon Says Stamp has an Anything Goes challenge this week, so I'm submitting this card.

  18. I hate to see so many pretty pearls given away on one card (bit of a scrooge that way) but it does add to the lovely flowers doesn't it? I like the texture that the felt gives
