Papercraft Star 168

Hello everyone!  I hope you are ready for another fun challenge over at the Papercraft Star!  This is our last challenge for the month and we will be taking the month of November off.  Let's make this a fun challenge!  We have a great inspiration photo.

Fleur de lis

I took inspiration from the natural colors in the photo.  I just love the natural tones for a Christmas card. I decided I'd better get started on Christmas cards after all the wonderful cards Deanne creates I couldn't resist.

I used an image and sentiment from Verve stamps along with a die cut doily from my friend Laura who is littleluluscraps on youtube.  She was kind enough to cut a variety of them for me.  Thank you Laura Lulu!  I also matted some text paper from prima and added some vintage lace to make my bow.  I finished off my bow with some rusty bells given to me from Teresa.  Thank you Teresa!  I do hope you get a chance to play along this week.  I would love to see how you are inspired by our photo.  Our design team members have more wonderful projects to further inspire you. Be sure to stop by the Papercraft Star blog to check it out!
