Happy Little Stampers - August Christmas Challenge

Come on now time to crank up a Christmas gear and get creating, only four months left! So why not join in with Happy Little Stampers new Christmas card challenge that's starting today?

And the optional twist is such a traditional element of Christmas I had to go with it. Also poinsettias are best on cards in my house - the real thing never seems to survive!

I used a stamp that has been lurking at the bottom of my Christmas stash and never been used before, definitley time to give it some love. I added a couple of strips of red card and then outlined them and the poinsettia with a grey promarker pen. Think that's why my photos have a bit of a blurry effect going on.

I coloured the flower centre in green and then added some tiny black gems too.

Stamps: Penny Black, Wonder Collection; HLS, Mixed Christmas Sentiments
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black
Promarkers: poppy, crimson, cool grey 1, meadow green
Embellishments: MeiFlower, black gems

Hop on over to Happy Little Stampers to get your mind blown away by the creativity of the rest of the DT - HERE. Then get those Christmas supplies out and get some cards into your 2017 stash!

So pleased you came by my blog today, please come back again soon as I love having you visit. And keep crafting!
