Guest Designer for Inspired By Challenge #189

Danni Reid of Inspired By Challenge invited me to guest design for Challenge #189
and I humbly accepted. They now have a new format with a Christmas and non Christmas
prompt in addition to Laurel's sketch.
I chose the Christmas prompt, Mistletoe 25 Cents.

And here's my card. I was inspired by the gorgeous wreath, a bit of gingham, and silver.
 I cut the Grapevine Wreath from Honey Bee Stamps twice from kraft card stock
and inked them with brown inks before layering them, offset, to create a
fuller wreath.

The sentiment was silver embossed inside the wreath and I added greenery and
silver circles cut from glitter card stock. The final touch was a bit of black and
white gingham adhered to the bottom of the card.

Visit Inspired By Challenge to see what their design team created and come and
join the challenge. Huge thanks to Danni and to the IB team for for the invite!
