House of Cards: December Blog Hop

Hi, friends!  It's time for another End of Term Blog Hop at House of Cards!  You should have arrived here from the HOC blog, but if not, make sure to stop by there for a full list of the hoppers!  It's also a DT call, so if you'd like to join our team, please check out the challenge post for all the details!  This hop will run from the 1st-15th of December, so don't wait too long!  We have some super fun photo inspiration for your crafting pleasure, too!  Take a peek...

Prize: Any three products of your choice!

I chose to use products from MHKDesigns for my creation for today's hop.  I was inspired by the fun wreaths and traditional colors of the inspiration photo.  Check out my creation...

This image is from the Wonderful Wreath digital stamp set.  I colored it with colored pencils, then added a bit of glitter gel pen to the berries before fussy cutting it out.  I added a sentiment from the Eat Your Cake digital stamp set (printed on vellum) right across the top of the image.  

I used papers from the Simply Seasonal and Stars & Stripes digital paper packs.  A smattering of rhinestones, a punched border gussied up with silver Liquid Pearls, and some ribbon finished off my creation.  I love the graphic, yet vintage, feel of it, and I hope you do, too!  I can't wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Your next step on the hop is Cohenna's blog!  Make sure to stop by all the other gals' blogs to see what they have in store--they ALWAYS amaze me!  Have fun!  Happy hopping, all! :)
