Merry Christmas to a Special Friend

Eileen is the host for this weeks Winter Wonderland challenge and she has chosen 'For Someone Special' or 'Happy New Year' as the themes. This doesn't have to be a Christmas project, although I've chosen to make another Christmas card.  We are sponsored by A Day for Daisies who are offering a $12 voucher and Crafter's Companion who are offering a £10.00 voucher.

I have used my last snippets of red and green card so I'm heading into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.  I am also entering the Alphabet Challenge 'U for Use Something Red', A Gem of a Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes' and Crafty Friends 'Merry Christmas' challenge.

Card blank:  7" x 7" white silk
Stamp: A Day for Daisies 'Christmas Flowers' digi stamp
Colouring: PromarkersCard: Red matt and green embossed
Other: Computer generated sentiment 'Harrington Font', Wink of Stella
Snippets: Red matt and green embossed card

I resized the digi stamp and added the sentiment before printing it onto white silk card.  I trimmed the image and coloured it with Promarkers.   This was then layered onto snippets of red and green card before being attached to the centre of the card.  To finish I highlighted the flowers with a Wink of Stella.
