January Cloud9 Blog Hop

Hello again! Welcome to the January Cloud9 Blog Hop!

This is my second post of the day, for my Serendipity Stamps Design Team Challenge, please scroll down or click here.

Ok! Here is this month's inspiration photo, another amazing pick from Suzanne:

I loved it! The color combination of kraft, cream, and silver is just so yummy - one of my new favorites. I took some very literal inspiration from the photo, and created this card:

I followed this tutorial for creating faceted stars from the Damask Love blog. I die cut some of Wplus9's Clear Cut Stackers: Stars from silver Glitter paper and layered them on a bit of corrugated cardboard. The sentiment is from the Label Layers 4 set and was stamped on the large Banner Trio Die.

I am so glad that you've stopped by to see me today, I hope you'll play along with this month's Cloud9 Blog Hop with the chance to win fabulous Wplus9 prizes! You have until 10 am on January 12th to link up with us over on the Cloud9 Blog.
