Paper Sweeties December Inspiration Challenge #14

Are you a Paper Sweeties fan? Well then you are going to want to stay tuned and check back often since we are doing things a little different this month.  Normally we have new release previews on the 13-16 of every month, but since you will be wanting these stamps early to make some cards they are hitting the store early.  Previews begin tomorrow.  Today begins a new monthly inspiration challenge at Paper Sweeties.  There is a new challenge every month and it's a great way to get ideas for your stamps as well as a chance to win some new ones!  Check out the inspiration photo this month - lots of earth tones and neutrals to work with here.

I made a layered card featuring a blond Sophie dressed as an angel  I paper pieced her tunic and wings and added different textures (crochet lace, burlap trim).  I was thinking of the nativity  I wanted to mix elegance and opulence, with a down to earth homespun feel.  

Want to see more?  Here's a list of the designers with projects today.   I really like that the Design Team alumni (which I will be joining next month) return for the sketch challenge every month.  I've gotten to know these ladies and respect and admire their creativity.

She positively glows against the rustic background. Loving that square doily, frames her perfectly.
