It's time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations and this month we'd like to see either Garlands, Wreaths and/or Christmas Flowers, so lots of scope and a chance to get ahead with the Christmas cards.
We've got Chocolate Baroque as our sponsors this month and they are offering this fabulous stamp plate as a prize.
I've used a very old Lili of the Valley stamp for my card, I also stamped extra baubles with gold and heat embossed before adding colour with Twinkling H2O's, adding these with 3D foam pads. I then matted onto some red mirri card, but this proved to be a nightmare to photograph! and the grey skies we've had didn't help no matter how hard I tried!! Getting the baubles to sparkle only resulted in a pink card!
The rest of the DT have some fabulous inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog, where you will also find all the challenge details.
A beautifully traditional feel to this one Avril and I can but imagine the lovely sparkle from the Twinkling H2O's along with gold embossing.
Absolutely gorgeous Avril, this is perfectly christmas. Hope your ok, here we go again, good luck and stay safe.xx
Your card is totally fabulous, love it! Have a great Sunday, hugs, Valerie
