Sentimental Sundays....Birth flowers

Hi Susan here....

Today we are starting another great challenge over at Sentimental Sundays and the theme is
This is about the flowers that are associated with the month you were born in.
For full details of the challenge, our sponsor and to get yourself some amazing inspiration from the design team call across to the Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog.

Now onto my card...

Well being born in December it wasn't hard to make a card with my birth flower, it is a poinsettia so another Christmas card was popping into my head straight away.

The small amount of backing paper I used on this card is from my stash, the plain cardstock is from Papermill Direct. I used a border punch for the edges of the green cardstock.
The beautiful metal Christmas Brads have been in my stash for ages.

This gorgeous stamp is from Sugar Nellie and I have used a grey memento ink for stamping as I wanted the edges soft, then coloured it in with promarkers, then added stickles for a bit of glitter here and there.

And last but not least here is my Birth Flower, the poinsettia, I have made this from cardstock with a ball tool and inks for colouring the edges, I made holly leaves and put them in the mixture. The centre of the flowers are micro beads.

I hope you have liked my card, and it has encouraged you to join our challenge.
Thank you for all your wonderful comments, they are so encouraging.
Love and hugs
