Wow, Black Friday and the Papertrey Ink November 2016 Blog Hop Challenge, all in one day!

Do you go out and shop on Black Friday? I have never gone shopping on Black Friday. The deals are not worth the stress to me – too many crowds, too many lines, not enough parking spaces.

SO…on to the challenge! Here is the inspiration:

I was inspired by the white tree, the blue gift boxes, and the various shiny metallics.

The sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink Holiday Wishes set, bought eons ago.

Supplies: Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Silver Foil, Taylored Expressions Cookie Monster, sequins – Darice, Doodlebug Designs, Lawn Fawn, Pretty Pink Posh, embossing powders – Filigree Fine Art Powder white, Ranger Silver Pearl.

  1. The sequins reminded me of multi-coloured fairy lights. Very pretty, very festive, very well done!

  2. This is just lovely! Those sequins on here are perfect.

    The only Black Friday shopping I do is online- I’m in Canada, but most of the retailers here participate to some extent.

  3. Wow, Kathy this looks like it came off the Hallmark shelf it’s simply stunning! I so love your design!

  4. Gorgeous card!! I love how the branches point to the sentiment…awesome use of metallics, too!

  5. Love the colours you’ve chosen, and the background is perfect.

  8. I love the way you framed the sentiment with the white branches! I’m definitely NOT a Black Friday shopper 🙂
