Morning again. I'm back to announce a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This week is our last challenge before the Christmas holiday's and our topic is -


So just time to get a few more Christmas cards completed!

My card uses a traditional image in traditional colours!

I think Christmas is one of the times when flowers are allowed on a fella's card!
I've already sent this card and it's been received so I feel I can now share it with you all.
This is a Penny Black stamp which I stamped on w/c paper using Festive Berries DI before masking and over stamping with a Stampendous Holiday Words stamp, embossed in white. I made a similar card last year but this one does not have so many chunky embellishments and so is post friendly! 
The red bracts of the poinsettia were painted with the same Festive Berries plus a little bit of Chipped Sapphire for the shadows. I washed in some more DI in a mixture of greens, sketching in some green leaves freehand. The tiny yellow flowers were coloured with Copics, then some Glossy Accents. The sentiment from the same set as the flowers, was stamped in black then the panel was glued flat onto a red base card.

Ok, that's it from me, please check out the rest of the DT for even more inspiration then why not join us this week.
