December 12 Kits of Occasions

Photo by Lindsey

Hello and Welcome to the 12 Kits of Occasions,
 this months host is Tracey McNeely

Tracey sent out a kit, full of darling papers that I have not seen 
or used before and I have lots of leftovers for later. Almost 
everything in the the kit from Tracey was new to me so that was fun.
 Tracey did all this with a broken collarbone...... Thank you Tracey! 

I used the sequins and colored paper from the kit, the die is from Papertrey Ink . 
I needed a birthday card,  I stamped the sentiment from
Concord & 9th

I added a bit of shimmer to the dress with Wink of Stella

Very simply and fun card

I cut the paper with a Poppystamps die and added a few flowers included in the kit.
 Included in the kit, was this gold embossed the sentiment. So easy and fun to create.

Thanks for the visit and be sure to by 12 Kits Blog to see the rest of the design teams cards.

May you all have a blessed Year in 2018

Again thank you all for your prayers for my daughter and son in law. You are all a blessing to our family
