CKCB: October Blog Hop

Welcome to My Rainbow Coalition!  This is the third stop on the CKCB Members' Blog Hop for October. You should have come here from Recklinghausen Musings, Lisa Hausmann's blog of her crafty goodness.

While you're here, take a second to enter to win a 20-page custom scrapbook project from my scrap-for-hire site using the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of this post.  (Make sure to click the green buttons to claim your entries.)

This month's challenge was to make something with your kit that was inspired by a piece of your jewlery.  My kit this month was called "Hey! I know her!"  because I found out on the first day of October that my friend Stacy was the guest designer for the month at CKCB.
With this challenge in mind, I stepped into my closet to look at my jewlery, and I saw these earrings hooked to an egg-shaped candle holder, and I knew that they would be the inspiration for my project.

I decided to make a holiday card. This was my first time using my new hexagon squeeze punch and my glossy accents.  Those are both going to be go-to elements in my stash from now on! I also used a Martha Stewart border punch that reminded me of the pattern in the egg. I'm pretty happy with how the card turned out.  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by! Your next stop on the hop is with Lesley at Oh, Blog It If You Can't Beat Them 

Here is the full blog hop list, but it will also be published on the CKCB so if you get lost along the way, head over there to find your way back onto the hop.

Don't forget to enter the giveaway before you go.  Happy hopping!
