December Diva Inspirations Hop and Challenge

Hi friends! It's the 10th of the month and time to hop along with the Divas as we share our takes on the December Diva Inspirations Challenge. 



The colors in the inspiration graphic reminded me of this fun hexagon paper, so I pulled it out and embossed one of the snowflakes from Jolly Jingles in white on each hexagon. Next I printed the sentiment from the My Cup to Yours digital set (free download through December 31) and cut out with a stitched circle die, adding a few coordinating snowflakes in melon mambo and bermuda bay. This is layered askew on a black stitched circle and I punched a hole and tied with baker's twine to make a little ornament shape.  I finished off with some distressed edges and a double seam binding bow.





Okay, on with the hop and challenge details.
Next up on the hop is Betty.
