One Card Two Challenges

Time for a new challenge over at Pixie's Snippet's Playground and this card also covers the current Challenge over at Stamping Sensations. Yesterday while the weather was terrible outside it was just right for giving my craft room a bit of a clear up (I had got to the stage where every surface was covered). While clearing up and making room in the cupboards I found a box full of larger sized offcuts and a box full of flowers and leaves stamped and cut ready to use. This card was the result of using only stuff from these two boxes, with the exception of the card base and the pearls. The Poinsettia and leaves are from Heartfelt Creations and were sat in the bottom of the box already stamped and embossed just begging to be used, all I had to do was ink around the edges of the flowers and leaves. The Winter Wishes was cut earlier at the beginning of the Autumn, (from a Tattered Lace die) also from off cuts of mirri card. The backing paper was some that I printed out a couple of years ago and set aside then not used. the gold mirri matting was from some that I had gutted from a larger project and the green matting was out of the box of larger offcuts, I'm not sure what I used the other part for. I have enough flowers and leaves left to make another couple of cards similar to this one, only I'll have to cut into some new mirri card for these.



Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

  11. Gorgeous card, I love the HFC poinsettias. They didn't make it to my collection as I have several other poinsettia dies and stamps, but I resisted :) I like how you added the little poinsettia to the holly flourish. Have a great day, Shirleyxx
