PTI November Blog Hop




Happy Black Friday everyone!  I'm not a fan of long lines and shopping crowds, so I'm choosing online shopping options along with supporting local small business owners if I do venture outdoors today!

I'm joining in on Papertrey Ink's November Blog Hop with inspiration from this delightful holiday photo!  I was especially drawn to the aqua and gold dotted boxes and was inspired by the pine Christmas trees and hot pink ornaments. One of my fave new Christmas stamp sets is PTI's Holiday Greens!  Since I wanted a blue spruce look to the pine boughs, I stamped in Old Olive then stamped again using Coastal Cabana ink by SU.  Berries were stamped with Melon Mambo and pine cones with Soft Suede.  The card base is Hawaiian Shores CS (PTI) and the gold dotted vellum (SU) was adhered with spray adhesive over white CS.  The tiny scalloped borders are Edge Essential Confetti Cuts by Reverse Confetti.  The sentiment die is by PTI.  

Be sure to hop along with other participants by heading to the PTI blog!
