Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop

Good morning! Excited this morning to be playing with my Newton's Nook Designs goodies this morning and joining them for a fun holiday blog hop this morning!


I still can't get enough of the cuteness of Holiday Hounds, so I decided to use that set for my card!


I made a simple watercolor background for him - I like how it kind of looks like snow being tossed up! Heat embossed the sentiment on a black hand trimmed banner with white embossing powder and inked the edges with some white ink, then added a strip of glitter washi tape and a few enamel dots. Finished off with some fun Echo Park pattern paper for the background.


Thanks for stopping by today - and hopping along with us! Here is the giveaway and hop order info for you:
