Christmas Flowers

 Hello and welcome back to another fantastic challenge at Happy Little Stampers Christmas, the theme is always anything Christmas but if you are so inclined you can put a flower or flowers on your project. 

I really tried to find another Christmas flower for the challenge, I had already made a poinsettia card but even google kept taking me to pictures of poinsettias. Although I had a hydrangea stamp I just wasn't sure if it would be accepted (even though it was on the list with Amaryllis, Christmas cactus and an Orchid. Sooooo Poinsettia it is.

I love taking pictures on the break wall of the beach although by the time I got my card done the  sky was overcast. This week working on my projects has become a comedy of errors, my planning skills seem to have disappeared over the winter and forgot inside sentiments so every card I made I have to remember to finish the inside I brought image stamps and birthday die cuts but tucked into a project case was a couple of dies one being PEACE and the other SNOW, I was in luck. The image I chose is from House Mouse Designs, my favourite guys, I worked with a couple of red markers on a practice stamped image, I didn't like the red at all, I ended up using E93, RV42 and R05 and I was happy.
