Christmas Flowers

The new Winter Wonderland challenge is 'Christmas Flowers' and we are sponsored by Little Claire Designs who are offering the lucky winner three digi stamps of their choice.

I'm entering the ABC Christmas Challenge 'U for Unlimited (or anything goes), the Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes' and The Merry Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes + Christmas'.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Stamp: Little Claire 'Poinsettia' digi
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Standard Circles Large and 'Classic Scalloped Circles Large'
Punch: Woodware Corner Rounder
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: White silk, red mirri
Paper: Wild Rose Studio 'Painted Poinsettias'
Other: Wink of Stella, red nailheads

I trimmed the poinsettia paper, layered it onto red mirri and attached it to the card front.  I trimmed a strip of holly paper, layered it onto red mirri and attached it across the card.  I resized the digi and printed it on white card.  This was die cut and embossed before being coloured with Promarkers.  I layered the image onto a red die cut and embossed scalloped circle and attached it to the centre of the card with Pinflair glue.  To finish I highlighted the flowers with a Wink of Stella and added nailheads to the top and bottom corners.
