Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Blog-hop-logo
Blog Hop InspirationIt's the 25th & that means 1 month until Christmas & PTI Blog Hop day! Have to work, so made my card after dinner yesterday.  Gorgeous color combo, but for some reason I couldn't come up with a card idea except to use Snowflake Flurries again. I really wanted to use my old Peaceful Poinsettia set & finally just went with simple stamping on a doily (rescued from under my soup cup at a restaurant) using PTI inks Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal & Simply Chartreuse. I wanted to include the silver & couldn't figure out a way to use my silver thread, so just added little silver stickers.

The center berries are covered with Frosted Lace Stickles, but I wanted more sparkle.  MFT Glitter Glaze was on my table so I spread it on the white area around the flower & leaves--super pretty in person. I'm also entering the challenge at Penny Black & More.
Enjoy the hop & I'll catch up with all of you soon. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog. Edited to add: also entering SSS Work It Wednesday & thanks to Brenda's suggestion I'm entering at Stamping Sensations.  Edited again: Must be loosing my mind as this card was made with Rudolph Days in mind & I entered it, but left it off my post.  You still have a few days to enter, so check it out.  Also entering SSS Wed.
