Spellbinders Design-abilities Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Design-abilities Blog Hop!   Every other month the Spellbinders® Blog Team gets together for a blog hop -this hop is just for fun and not sponsored by Spellbinders.  Not all of us could participate today, but I encourage you to visit all of their blogs.  You will find amazing projects of all kinds, including papercrafting, mixed media, DIY projects, jewelry, home decor, with lots of tutorials and techniques!

My card uses the 2013 Snowflake Pendant dies.  Each year Spellbinders comes out with a special snowflake pendant die set and this year's is GORGEOUS!  I layered 2 of the snowflakes for my card and added lots of sparkle with rhinestones and stickles.  I also used the A2 Curved Borders for the curve at the bottom.  I've used this layout before and really love it. 

As designers we are always inspired by each other and we hope to inspire you too.  Enjoy the hop!
