seeing stars for Papertrey blog hop (PTI, CPT)


It's time to blog hop with Papertrey... but you already know that, don't you?
Let's get to it.  There are a few really cool color combos to choose from and  I picked this one:
Two grays, two teals and a star.  Here she is.


I wanted to do something with a star cuz I love the look of the right photo in this inspiration board from The Creative Paper Trade.  A twofer so to speak.  See the shine in the photo (mirror, lamp, stars)?  If you look closely you'll see that I used some silver ink on the wreath too.  Gives it that "little something."


Happy hopping.


Supplies Happy holidays:
Paper: cardbase PTI
Stamps:  PTI, tweed WMS
Ink: Memento Gray Flannel, Versacolor Cement, no name Silver, Versamagic Teal and Sea Breeze
Tools: die Sizzix
Other: twine

Love the way you've used the star dies to get this impression on your card! Your little wreath is darling and the subtle strip of color in the background is just the right touch. Thanks so much for joining us at The Creative Paper Trade!
