QKD Royal Monday Blog Hop and QKD 12 Days of Christmas Challenge: Day 6

Don't forget each week we have two Royal Court blog hops. I'm on Monday's hop list. The other half of the QKD Design Team will reveal their cards on Wednesday. For both hops, and to start at the beginning to see all of the great projects, click on QKD. If you've been following the blog hop, you came from my Monday blogging buddy, Kelly. Next up is my Stampin' Saturday partner, Penny.

I'm also taking on Queen Kat's challenge to post 12 Days of QKD Christmas. So check my blog daily for more stamping ideas.

Today's Royal Court assignment is to use this sketch. I decided to pair the sketch with the December release Berry Fairy designed by Amariah Shelton for Queen Kat Designs.

Since one of the sentiments in the Berry Fairy set is Pretty in Pink, I chose Swell Noel pink snowflake paper and coordinating pastel stripes holiday paper left over from last Christmas to create a card for my two great-nieces. I also got out my MS punches to make the snowflakes and lace border. Berry is colored with Copics, Ranger Stickles, and a white Signo pen. I also added a holiday sentiment from the QKD Christmas Greetings stamp set. Then I stickled a larger snowflake and added glittery stickers to the centers of the snowflakes. Sentiments are stamped with Archival Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid ink for a shimmery effect.
