One Stitch at a Time Challenge 207

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we want to see flowers! They can be in the image or as an embellishment - the choice is yours.

Our sponsor this week is:
This week, I chose an image from Ike'sArt called Poinsettia Cluster. Yes, I've started my Christmas cards. I normally try to get started during the Easter holidays, and they started this weekend, so I'm just about on schedule.

I arranged two of the image in Photoshop Elements before printing. I coloured using Promarkers and Flexmarkers and finished each flowers with some spots of Letraset Metallic marker in gold. I die cut the greeting using a Britannia die (not one of my favourites - it's not easy to get a clean cut.) I added some sticky ribbon (from Tiger), some glitter paper and a couple of paper flowers I've had forever, finishing the flowers with some Liquid Pearl. So, nothing too complicated, and what's more, I'll even be able to post the result!

I hope you can join us this week.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly where anything goes,

I love your card Josephine, but don't love thinking about Christmas just yet...we've still got snow for our very long winter and I sure don't want to be reminded of Christmas now !! It is such a lovely creation though, so I mean no disrespect to you. Good for you for getting started so early.
