Damask Diva's Sparkle and Shine blog hop

Hi everyone! Hillary here! Hope y'all are enjoying the Damask Diva's
Holiday Catalog Blog Hop featuring the Sparkle and Shine paper pack!
If you came from Crissy's page, you are in the right place! 
If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop,
 feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the 
complete list of blog hop participants.

For my first card I used a sketch from Sketchbook Saturday
to create my Sparkle and Shine creation. I hand cut five
banners in various sizes and mixed them up and 
randomly taped them across the top of my juniper paper.
I used the wreath, berries, and bow from the Remarkable Wreath
stamp set. The bird, fancy circle, and sentiment are from the
Perfect Fit - Holidays stamp set. The colors of ink I used
are ruby, juniper, whisper, slate, and black.

I am also entering this card into this week's challenge of 
'Things with Wings' at Twist of Faith

For my second card, I used a sketch from The Sweet Stop.
I used the October stamp of the Month 
Scandinavian Wishes which is only available until the end of the month
and is only $5 with a $50 purchase or $17 at regular price. I did
some masking on this one to be able to make the heart ruby and the tree
juniper. The rest of the stamp is in slate. 

All the items from the Holiday Catalog are available here!

Come and shop with me here!
