Flowers For Christmas over at Winter Wonderland for my DT Card

Well it must be nearly the weekend, and this weekend sees the beginning of my week's holiday from work.  Whoop Whoop - that means relaxing, crafting, visiting friends and catching up on the bits and bobs in the house.
I really enjoyed visiting all of the entries in the Love Theme last challenge at Winter Wonderland there were some amazing entries.

This weeks theme is
 
Traditional Christmas Flowers

and we are sponsored by

So I started to create a card and whilst doing so found some gorgeous hidden in my stash poinsettia paper so ended up creating two. I chose this one for my DT card.
This one was created using the sketch for the Sketch and Stash Challenge 37
This was a lovely sketch to follow and I really enjoyed working with it.  I also had not entered a Polly Craft Challenge for a while so decided to go with one of their images and their theme of "Ribbon and Bling".  I used my new stamp again and stamped using my glue stamp and then glittered it up with some gorgeous glitter from the Hobby House the set is called "Wonderland" how appropriate.  The papers are Bo Bunny I believe and look at all those dots on the paper and on the image just perfect for the challenge at Stampavie and More this week which is "Dots".  I used my new Nellie die for the circle and that lovely velvet red ribbon to finish the look before adding the all important Poinsettia flowers with the matching turquoise green brads.  I added stickles glitter in gold for the bobbles.  I am also entering this card into the CupCake Craft Challenge - Dazzle Us and the Allsorts Challenge of "Strawberries and Cream" with that spotty red and white paper and the red flowers, using the colours to create the card and finally one of my favorite places to shop the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - A Recipe of 1 image, 2 papers and 3 embellishments, I have the flowers, brads and the ribbon. And last but not least Bah Humbug - Anything Goes

The second card which I did not use as my DT card but uses some lovely papers to show how you can also use poinsettias on your card and I also used my larger Justrite stamps on this one along with a recycled ribbon from last years Christmas.
This was a very quick creation with added glitter around the outside and the sentiment.

I would also like to welcome Jo to my little section of blog land, Good Luck Jo in your search to become a DT member.

Well as always Mr Blogger will very kindly post this for me whilst I am at work and I will link when I get home.

Thanks for all your recent lovely comments and hope you all have a great crafty relaxing weekend.

Hugs Kate xx
