Centerstage Spotlight Blog Hop

It's GinaK CenterStage Spotlight Design Team's Inspiration blog hop, and what a fun inspiration photo it was! Just take a look at this delicious, gorgeous cookie bouquet that we sent to Design Team Coordinator Jessica Fick (more pictures here)!

For many of us, Rupa's newly released Warm and Wonderful was the first thing that came to mind, so I wouldn't be surprised if you see a lot of it as you make your way along! The mittens, of course, are the obvious similarity...I was drawn to the rich greens in the photo, so I grabbed the Pure Luxury card stock and some designer paper, the Memento ink and Copic markers and got to *work* ;) .

My nesties hearts worked wonderfully with this sweet sentiment, and the punched snowflake and heart-shaped button were the perfect embellishments to tie the design together. A little Tim Holtz distress ink gave more warmth to the edges of the papers and card stock. If you look closely you'll see that there are faint snowflakes stamped on the kraft card base.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and that you'll come back again! And now, here are the rest of the hop's participating designers:
