House of Cards

***So Excited! this card was chosen as one of the Top Ten at House of Cards!***

Hello!!! I am so excited! The Paper Sweeties Teamies have been invited to participate in the Blog Hop at House Of Cards! And boy, do we have a beautiful inspiration photo!!!

I had so much fun creating this card! 

That inspiration photo has some of my favorite colors...brown and blue. Add silver and white and you get magic!!!! I just knew the holly leaves die from Paper Sweeties Holly Days would be perfect to use on the reindeer. I cut the holly out of some beautiful blue glitter paper. And I knew the Believe die from Paper Sweeties Joy die set would be the perfect addition! I added lots of sparkle and shine with silver embossed snowflakes and sequins! Hope you like my card!

And please check out ALL of the gorgeous creations from my Paper Sweeties design teamies! You will be truly inspired!
