PTI November Blog Hop

Finally had a chance to participate in a PTI blog hop!  Haven't done this in awhile, but the day after Thanksgiving is a lazy one for me and perfect day to participate.  I steer clear of the Black Friday madness!    Here's my card:


And here's the inspiration photo:


I was drawn to the horizontal lines of the stairs which was the inspiration of my lay out.  I used the PTI woodgrain impression plate to mimic the hardwood floors.  I pulled in the evergreens with the wreath.  I used PTI kraft, pure poppy, vintage cream, and black CS to mimic the color scheme.  I added some beautiful 7/8" red/ ivory check ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel with a PTI pure poppy button and some natural jute / twine to pull in the gingham pillow.   I used the following PTI stamp sets:  Wreath for All Seasons and Background Basics: Christmas.

Thanks for hopping by!

  20. Great take on the inspiration with the wood.
    I went shopping, but not until 9 am when the "serious" shoppers were already done for the day. I still picked up a few bargains - plus, my LSS did not open until 9 so why shop any earlier ;>)

  22. Perfection! What a gorgeous bow. I am always in awe of your superlative bow tying skills. I'd still be there a week later trying to get that darn thing to look even half right. The wreath is so sweet. Great job all round.
