Inspired By Stamping - Joyeux Noel

I've got one last project from our new September releases over at Inspired By Stamping.  I used the new Elegant Christmas Sentiments and paired it with another IBS set, Paris.


Here's a close-up of the sentiment and a new paper rose available at the store....


....and a new ribbon, too!  Elegant black, with a subtle pattern on it.  It is soft and holds its shape beautifully.


The snowflakes, stamped on the doily and the book page, are from Elegant Christmas Sentiments.


The edge of the envelope wears some decoration, as well:


Inspired by Stamping has a store-wide sale going on in September.  You can check it out HERE.

Each design team member has one last project to share with you:

Love the layers on this card Colleen. Stamping the snowflakes onto the newsprint and over the doily is so pretty and really adds to the french 'feel'. Beautifully done!!!
