Here are the details of the Blog Hop:

The Hop will run 8am EST Dec 1 til 8pm EST Dec 2. The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Dec 3.

Now on to my card details:

I used Simple Things and the custom Die Cut to cut it out, and the Honeycomb Background.  I stamped my images with Memento and colored with Copics.  I stamped the sentiment with VersaColor.  I used Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish Die to cut my vines, and Spellbinder's Labels 21 and Fleur de Lis Accents to frame the sentiment.  My base is Bazzill, and the white is Gina K Pure Luxury heavy weight.  I embossed the Honeycomb bg with T Holtz Distress Embossing Powder in Antique Linen.  I kept the card flat and mailable with only some tiny pearls added to the corners.
