Let's Hop Challenge

To kick off their December release, Flourishes Stamps is hosting a 'Let's Hop Challenge' which you can check out here. At each site on the hop a new clue is revealed for this progressive challenge. Here is the card that I created for this challenge using my new Poinsettia and Pine stamp set, love this set.

1. Not an A2 size - my card is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
2. Use a floral - I used Poinsettia & Pine
3. Use lace or ribbon - I used purple ribbon
4. Use the inspiration photo - I took my colours from the the photo
5. Add a tag - I added a Classic tag die from Flourishes
6. Add a rounded corner or die with curvy edges - I used the Classic Circle die
7. Add distressing or sponging - I sponged around the circle die
8. Use a die cut or punch - I used Decorative Labels One die
