Papertrey Ink November 2015 Blog Hop

I am participating in the Papertrey Ink November 2015 Blog Hop today. Nichole Heady gave us this gorgeous photo to inspire us with a nontraditional Christmas color scheme.

Blog Hop Inspiration


I recreated the framed mirror with a couple of Nestabilities and Kraft Core Metallic Silver paper, making it into a shaker box. A couple of sentiments from the Christmas Cheer Stamp Set are stamped in Simply Chartreuse ink at the top and bottom of the frame and the matching glitter paper die cut is adhered across the sides.




The shaker is filled with an assortment of aqua, silver and white micro beads and chartreuse, aqua, teal and clear sequins before being sealed. A few sequins and rainstones are scattered across the front of the card, echoing the diagonal line of the die cut sentiment.





This was a tough card to photograph as the die cut either created a shadow or was mirrored on the silver paper.

I'm off to see how everyone else was inspired by these fabulous colors.

My dear husband is going rogue again this year and putting lamb on the rotisserie for Thanksgiving dinner. I have to have my turkey, fresh cranberry sauce and mountain of stuffing so our table will be very full. I hope everyone else celebrating Thanksgiving this week has a great, relaxing holiday! 

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie
