Christmas Flowers

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland, this week it's my turn to host and our theme is Bows, a nice easy one for you, any Christmas creation as long as you add a bow.

I have used a fabulous decoupage image from Jayne Nestorenko for my card and teamed it up with some papers from Trimcraft.


I have used gold card stock from my stash, a sentiment recycled from an old Christmas card and some ribbon and card candy.


This week we are sponsored by Oyster Stamps


who are offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

CHNC Challenge Extra for May - Anything Christmas
Nutcrafters Challenge 67 - Bingo (Flowers. Ribbon, Christmas Card)

Make sure you pop over to the Winter Wonderland Challenge blog and take a look at the fabulous DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Bows challenge - don't forget it must be a Christmas card.

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.

This design is so elegant, I love the combination of white and gold and a bit of green. A great alternative to red, and it still feels very traditional.
