Winter Blossoms at Winter Wonderland

Good morning.  We had a couple of glorious days and then wham! Back to cold and windy.  Ah, the good old British weather!

This is my DT post for the Winter Wonderland challenge "Winter Blossoms" which was chosen by Marie . This isn't the card I planned to make.  I have a lovely John Lockwood poinsettia stamp set I got last year but could I find it?  Of course I could - but not until I had gone with Plan B!  Instead of being in the box with my Christmas stamps I had inadvertently put it with the sentiment stamps.  Never mind, this is one of my favourite Christmas stamps anyway and so I added the poinsettia die cuts and holly to fit in with the winter blossom theme.

Our sponsors this time are Bugaboo Stamps who are giving seven  images from their online store, and the Craft Barn, who are offering a £10 voucher to spend in store.

My Card


Recipe
5" x 7" tent fold card - made from Papermania card stock
A2 Bracket Borders One - Spellbinders
Midnight Clear background stamp - Our Daily Bread Designs
Poinsettia dies - Marianne 
Holly Vine die - Memory Box
Pearls - Hobby House

I used the bracket border to shape the base of the card and coloured a border with the same ink I used for stamping. I'm sorry that it's not a very clear image.

We would love you to join in so please pop over to the challenge blog and check out the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT. Please remember that we only accept Christmas projects!

Have a great day.  Take care.

Hi Christine
Wonderful stamp and card. I'm liking that holly vine too.
I have the stamp of John's you mentioned and have yet to use it so I may have to fish it out as I have a bit of craft time at the moment.
Have a great weekend.
