"Anything Goes" Blog Hop with Die-Versions and Repeat Impressions

Welcome to the Die-Versions and Repeat Impressions Blog Hop!  

We hope you are ready for some great inspiration - our theme is 'Anything Goes', and what awesome creations there are to see!
And...what's a blog hop without prizes?
There will be one lucky winner of a $20 gift card from Repeat Impressions
and one lucky winner for a $20 gift card from Die-Versions!  

Let's get hopping!

You should have arrived here from Mary's blog.  
If you didn't, and you'd like to start at the beginning, you can find the entire hop list on the Die-Versions and Repeat Impressions' blogs

Be sure to start at the beginning, so you have the maximum chances of winning!  

The more you comment along the way, the more chances you have of winning!
You will have until midnight CST on Saturday, November 15th, to comment.  
Winners will be announced on the Die-Versions and Repeat Impression blogs on Sunday, November 16th.

I die cut the Die-Versions Whispers Delicate Snowflake several times out of white cardstock and layered them together using a liquid adhesive.  Once all of the layers were dry, I inked the snowflake stack with Versamark ink and embossed with silver embossing powder.  I repeated the silver embossing two more times in order to create a faux metal look on the snowflake.

For the sentiment panel, I stamped the Repeat Impressions Happy Memories #2209-I in Eggplant ink onto a white panel and layered it to a light purple and faux metal silver edged panel.

We hope that we have inspired you to be creative, and that you'll do a bit of shopping at the Die-Versions and Repeat Impressions' websites!

Thanks for stopping by today!  

Your next stop on the hop is Irit's blog!
