Winter Blossoms - Bugaboo stamps - Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning, it's Friday and time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland where Marie is our host and has chosen the theme of 'Winter Blossoms' so we want to see poinsettias Christmas roses etc. They can be made by you, part of the background paper or bought complete.  It's up to you with lots of scope to make something different too.
I have used a Bugaboo Digi called 'Deck the halls' and I know a couple of ladies who look just like her :)

She is straight cut and mounted on red mirror card, and I cut the frame with SB Grand Squares. (I know the red mirror card looks wrinkled, but it
is a reflection of the foil light catcher that I use).The sentiment comes with the stamp.   I tried something new in using some glittered hessian that I found in a local shop. The poinsettia is made with SB dies. I think

A close up of the image . I added Glossy Accents to her glasses and the holly berries. The pearls are from my stash/

She is coloured using Flexmarkers, Triamarkers and Promarkers, and I added some Prisma pencil for more definition. 

A view of the inside where I reversed the colours. The die cut is from Wild Rose Studio and the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

We are very lucky to have 2 fabulous sponsors this week, Bugaboo stamps are giving the winner a choice of 7 digi's of their choice

and The Craft Barn are giving a £10 voucher to spend in store.

So that's it, a nice easy theme. You can get inspiration from the other Snowflake ladies on the Winter Wonderland blog, and I hope you will check them out here.  Don't forget your project must follow the theme and be a Christmas project.

Thanks for taking the time to look  
Don't forget to check back on Monday to find out the winner of the 'Pink or Blue' Card
