Design Diva's November Oldie Blog Hop

The Design Divas challenges us to use an "Oldie" meaning it is more than 6 months old (and I hate to admit...never used until today) for the Design Diva's Blog Hop. I am working on Christmas cards......


  I made this card using a SU set Delicate Doilies. I was inspired by a card I saw HERE. This card uses a Technique Junkies Technique called Faux Designer Paper Too.  The cardstock is SU Whisper White, and  Red Pepper Columns and Gold.

 ****************************************************************************************
 The Design Diva's are a group of stampers on Facebook and we have a monthly Blog Hop using images that are greater than 6 months old. Our Title Acronym stands for: Divine, Inspirational, Virtuous, Artistic (or annointed) sistahs! Our group originated at SCS  and has recently branched out to the new FB group.What a great challenge to use stamps that have taken a back seat......


 The Blog Hop starts with Chrissy D and I am stop 9 of 11.  The stop before me is  Michelle and the NEXT stop is Sue.
****************************************************************************************

 I hope you are inspired to pull out a stamp or a digi image that is over 6 months old.

Thanks for stopping by!
Shelly

Shelly, this is so awesome. What a great way to use that stamp set. I like how you made the wreath and the background paper to go with it. I have gotta do at least one card like that before Christmas and share it with my customers. Thanks for the inspiration my clever friend.
