Hopping Around the World Blog Hop October 2019

October 2019 - Christmas theme!
If you're here - you have probably just have come from the fabulous Susan Simpson of the UK!  Check out my post and then continue on hopping for some wonderful Christmas ideas!
So today I am sharing a beautiful card using the Garden Lane DSP from SU's Annual catalog.  Those greens are just so fresh and perfect for holiday crafting.  What really makes this card POP is the awesome deer and flowers cut from the Noble Peacock Foil sheets.  That shimmer is perfect for holiday cards.

You can see above that I also stamped sentiments and flourishes on the card and envelope, from the Dashing Deer set in the Annual catalog.  I really love that SU! included so many Christmas sets in their annual catalog - as I do my Christmas cards year round.
Here's the inside of the card - I have it some extra character with an stitched edge oval to carry the ovals from the front of the card right on through; and added  a couple more foil flowers.
I hope you liked this card  - now for more inspiration continue hopping through the list.  The next stop is at Claudia Secke's site.

I would never have used this designer series paper for Christmas cards. I don't know why because your card looks great.
An I love the sentiment in the inside of the card!
