Fancy Friday Blog Hop - Lullaby Christmas

One of the greatest things EVER is Stampin' UP! Designer Series Paper! Do you not agree? I mean 24 sheets of 12 patterns and chocked full of potential!
Welcome to the FANCY FRIDAY BLOG HOP for a Designer Series Paper Challenge!
My fancy friends and I are BACK! We loved working with each other so much that we decided to continue on with an all new blog hop to inspire you in fun new ways! Each month on the last Friday, we will bring to you new challenges of all kinds (color,sketch, stamp focus, etc) that you can even participate in! But wait....
Some of us are even giving away to one lucky winner the DSP that we worked with!
Yeppers! Be sure to hop to each fancy lady on the Fancy Friday Design Team and follow their instructions to WIN!
I use the Lullaby Designer Series Paper from the Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog. I love this DSP! Such a soft pastel color combo and great designs! I also just got this beautiful stamp set called Ornamental Pine from the Holiday Catalog so I jumped at the chance to play with it. I stamped the pine branch and sentiment with Baked Brown Sugar, the ornament with Crisp Cantaloupe right on top of the Designer Series Paper pattern of Hello Honey and Crisp Cantaloupe "bohek" or "confetti" dots. Have you ever use DSP this way? Actually stamped right on it?

I added some of the Frosted Sequins and In-Color Sequins for even more sparkle. See the Blushing Bride 1/4" Cotton Ribbon? Nice touch of a softer Crisp Cantaloupe. Of course, I had to use more of the DSP to make a matching envelope! I added a Lullaby piece cut with the largest Envelope Liners Framelit and placed into a Whisper White envelope.
Now the deets on how YOU can win this 
WHOLE PACKAGE OF THE LULLABY

I love that stamp set. Your card is beautiful. I think now that I have seen how it was used that I need it. I had looked at that set and thought that there wasn't much to do with it. Boy was I wrong..Great card.

I'm a big fan of using nontraditional colors for Christmas. I think using the Ornamental Pine stamp set and sequins really pulled everything together perfectly. Thank you for the new take on using the Lullaby DSP.

I didn't love the lullaby paper when I first saw it, but now I am second-guessing that! I love that you incorporated an unexpected color scheme to a holiday card. It is beautiful! ~Lauren Reeves lrossing@live.com

Stripped paper can be hard to work with for me. I love how you worked with it and how your card turned out. I'm inspired to experiment using your ideas.
