Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge

Welcome to the October Papertrey Blog Hop! 



This month's challenge was to make a card celebrating the winter season so I pulled out my "Peace Be Still" stamp set and set to work.


 I just adore the new Distressed Dots patterned paper!! I can tell already that this one will be a favorite and you'll probably see it often!  And, I have to admit how much I love snowflake images too, so I hope you don't get tired of those either! LOL!


 I found this fun glittery foam at a local store and knew that I had to have it to use with the snowflake dies from the Peace Be Still set! I love how glittery they are and I didn't have to make any glittery mess of my own to create them!  SCORE! :)  They are SO sparkly in real life!


I also love how the twine looks wrapped around the bow.  It just has such a nice contrast against the white ribbon and just looks wintry.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'd love to hear what you think!  If you'd like to check out other blogs on the PTI blog hop, be sure to visit Nichole's blog for the links to the other participants!  And, if you'd like to participate and make your own card celebrating the winter season, you have until 11 PM EST tonight to add your link!
