A new challenge at Divas by Design.

Happy Wednesday blogger friends.
Hope you are all having a lovely week. Are you all managing to fit in some crafty time?
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Diva's by Design. We would like to see Festive Floral/Christmas flowers.
I have used an image I bought two years ago from Lili of the Valley All in a Row.

The items used with a link to the online store will be at the bottom of this post.
I was intending to use some papers from Nitwit Collections Christmas Linen for the backing papers but my printer ran out of ink. I just had enough ink to print out the paper which had the poinsettias on it which I cut out.
The backing papers are from LOTV as is the sentiment in the centre of the Poinsettias. 

I have coloured the image with Inktense pencils and Distress Markers.
The bow made from ribbon in my stash. The stars are made from Martha Stewart air drying clay and a mould.

The red berries are from The Range and the frosted berries are from Anne Marie Designs. I cannot see the exact berries but they have similar ones here.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
Inky Chicks - Christmas
Oldie but Goodie - Christmas (stamp is more than 6 months old)
The Crafty Blogger Network - Christmas
Penny Black and More - Get ahead for Christmas
That Craft Place - Girls but no Pink
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Anything goes with a twist - add flowers
Addicted to Stamps - Anything goes
LOTV's Ideas to Inspire - Anything goes
Scribble and Scrap - Anything goes

I would like to see hello to my new followers. Thank you for your wonderful comments.
Today is my extremely long day at work so I will look forward to catching up with you on Thursday.

Stunning Christmas card I love this image its one of my favourites even though its an older one. I've had it stamped ready to colour on my desk for at least 7 weeks and not got round to it yet other things have taken priority . You have inspired me to get on and colour it and make a card. Your card is a fabulous design and I love the beautiful Christmas flowers Love and Hugs Carole x
