Okay I Give in---Christmas

Morning and I have a star card to share today now I made my first one on Thursday (but can't blog that one yet and couldn't believe how easy it was first attempt ---so first mistake decided to make a Christmas one-now after my first result I got a bit cocky and came unstuck!!!I stamped and watercoloured a poinsettia image three times and decoupaged then misjudged pattern on my papers so that was another bin entry!
I die-cut a circle from glittery mirri card and added the flowers got as far as taking the pic and the poinsettias looked rubbish so they came off-papers and sentiment -also stamped sentiment were craft mag freebies-first topper also went in the bin and decided to go with this one even though not entirely happy with result.The sparkly snowflakes were gifted from another blogger-thank you Dionne.The first word of sentiment is not covered it was the angle I took the pic---trust me lol.

Flower/Pearls and a Scrap

Morning and I have two DT posts today the second one is for the "Add a Flower" challenge at Creative Craft Cottage.
Now this card practically made itself-I was looking through my flower dies and papers and found this torn piece od embossed watercolour card with colour already added left over from another project didn't go with any papers so matted it onto black and Memory Box die cut flower in black and added three pearls.
Will add a sentiment when needed.
