Papertrey Ink December 2014 Blog Hop

Hello friends : )



I hope you are enjoying days filled with friends and family!  I want to take this time to thank ALL of my followers and visitors : )  It is always so much fun to read the sweet comments you leave! I appreciate it very much!!  I love the warm welcome this community has shown me.  I look forward to all the fun and friendships to be made in 2015! : )

Before I start today I would like to welcome my newest follower, the UBER talented and kind, Teresa Kline owner of Paperie Blooms blog.  To me, Teresa is a real celebrity in the paper crafting community.  I love being inspired by her faith and her talent.  You will too : ) please drop in and tell her hello AND maybe even leave a comment for a chance to win a nice prize! that she is giving away - but you better hurry tomorrow is the last day to enter! : )

My card today is for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge : )   I was really excited to see the inspiration for this months challenge because I love the elegance of silver, gold and white together.



Starting with the best white card stock IN THE WORLD! in my opinion : ) I "debossed" some Fancy Flakes Snow flakes on my card face.  Next I cut some of the same snow flakes out and, after doing a little bit of layering, attached them to my card : )   The silver might be a little hard to see but it  is represented in my sheer white ribbon with the silver edging : )

This card is so versatile.  You could use it for a winter wedding , holiday greeting , thinking of you, birthday or even sympathy card.  I think I might have to CASE myself and make more of this one for my stash!

Please consider visiting the blogs of each participant in the HOP and leave some sparkle behind when you do!!

BIG (((Hugs)))
Patti

Supplies:

Gold card stock from my stash
