World Card Making Day 2012 Winners Blog Hop

Good morning! Super excited today to be hopping along with the rest of the winners from Paper Crafts Magazine's World Card Making Day 2012 Contest! If you just arrived here from Emily's blog, you are in the right spot. Otherwise, the entire line-up is on the bottom if you would like to hop all the way along! 

I remember being completely stunned when I got the email last year that I won in the Holiday Card category! You should totally get your entry in for this year - you can find all the info HERE.


Everyone was asked to create a card in the same category as they won last year - so here is my holiday card:


Here is my inspiration - I fell in LOVE with that branch on the top of this picture from Pinterest - so when I got my Design Team package of stamps from Neat and Tangled, I knew I had to recreate it with stamps!


I used stamps from 3 of the new sets - Merry and Bright, Simple Christmas, and Just for You, and lots of MFT dye inks. I also added some Crystal Clear and Lemon Satin sequins, and a bit of bling from my stash.


My kraft cardstock is by Avery Elle, and the center panel used PTI's Rustic Cream cardstock.


So glad you stopped by today! You're next stop along the way is Jaime's blog. If you get lost, here is the entire line-up! Make sure and stop in at Paper Crafts Connection for what I hear will be a fabby and fun giveaway!
