CHNC challenge 177: festive flowers and/or foliage


This is my card for my CHNC challenge 177: festive flowers and/or foliage - I invite you to click on the link and join in the challenge. I've used a stamp from a set by Cupids clear stamps similar to one of the sets that will be given to one of the randomly chosen winners. I inked the stamp with memento cottage ivy and randomly stamped off the corner edges of the ivory card blank. I then added some red faux stitching around the edges. The thoughts and prayers Hampton Art stamp was inked with the memento cottage ivy. The poinsettia-type flower is an odd one that has been in my Christmas stash for ages (it's about time it should be used).

I used two offcut pieces of Hunkydory card for the background, joining them with some stitched ribbon.

The addition of a Craftwork cards sentiment label completed the card.
