Papertrey Blog Hop - Glitter and Pearls
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas! We sure did! More on that to come.
In the meantime, I didn't want to miss this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop though.....this month its all about inspiration! The holiday season will be coming to a close but before we put the decorations away we were encouraged to take a closer look and see if we could gain paper crafting inspiration from any of them!
I actually decided to take my inspiration from this photo I found while browsing the Country Living website:
I love the pearl garland, blue bow and glittery ornaments!
So keeping that in mind, I created this card:
I used the snowflakes and sentiment from the Winter Swirls stamp set.The snowflakes are embossed in African Gold while the sentiment is stamped in Enchanted Evening. I then added some pearls to the snowflakes and a bit more glitter with the edged ribbon. This ended up having a very elegant feel.
I can't wait to see what all the other participants came up with!
