Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Baubles for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today we have  our combined hop with  our group from Canada.   Because this is a combined hop we have a sketch and a color challenge.  We can do one or both of the challenges.  Today I am combining both the sketch and color challenge for you.  We will be using Merry Merlot, Copper and Tranquil Tide along with a fun sketch.

    So pretty. You used both challenges perfectly. I like all your embellishments…those little glimmer stars and dots add a little extra touch and fit with the glammer of the ornaments.

  2. Jaimie says:

    Gorgeous and as always I have bow envy! You always make the best bows. Love how you used both challenges.
