Papertrey Blog Hop - November 25



This months Papertrey Ink Blog Hop takes on the holidays with the rich and vibrant hues of a traditional Christmas.  I jumped head first into the challenge picking my theme, colours and stamp sets right from the get go. 



The fabulous bough from Love Lives Here Holidays is stamped at the top with Spring Moss and accented with Ripe Avocado then embellished with Pure Poppy berries.  I decided on a door from Home Made because of its welcoming feeling and stamped the frame in Versamark.  I knew my door needed a wreath and that is why I chose this sentiment.  I was having trouble figuring out what to use for my wreath when it hit me that there had to be something suitable in one of the first 10 Flower Fusion stamps and dies.  Sure enough #4 was perfect, doesn't it look like a real wreath on the door.  A tiny heart in the middle of the wreath tied in with the sentiment and then I applied it to the door with a foam dot!



The second part of my blog hop project is the beginning of 25 days of Christmas Tags.  Each day for the next 25 days I will be posting a new Christmas Tag as I get my stash together for this year's Christmas.  Come back each day to have a look, I will try to inspire you.

What a wonderful card and tag. I love how you used the skate. I wished I had a skate! And, how clever of you to make a wreath out of a FF die cut. It looks really good, and the scale is perfect for that door.
