Christmas Bouquet - Well Sorta

The main image started in my mind as becoming a Christmas flower arrangement. hee hee. I'd say it didn't quite come to fruition as to what I had in mind. I am so in need of new holiday stamps, that I was trying to find something to use with this great pp I picked up at a LSS on the weekend and had nothing, therefore the making of this country looking card. Do you think it looks country? Speaking of which, tomorrow I have to travel up to the sister inlaws up in the boonies or so it seems to a city slicker like me, so I best get back to packing! Thanks for following my dungeon creations.

Oh, more blah blaha... I had challenged myself NOT to use bling on this card. Hard to do, but I didn't add any stickles, gem brads, iridiscent ice etc... Once I put the 3 coloured scalloped nestie circles together, I thought of making it into a ornament. I just bought a cuttlebug folder/ dye cut that had a little ornament top piece to it. Perfect fit to give it that look!


Stamps - CTMH With Love, So Many Sayings and Season of Joy
Papers - Vanilla, Dark spring green, medium belguim blue by Worldwin, Kaisercraft - Cheer Christmas Wish and textured red.
Inks - Real Red, Old Olive, River Rock and Brocade Blue
Accessories - Red ribbon, nesties, punch, cuttlebug xmas dye, ribbon

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians! Gobble gobble!
What's your favourite part of Thanksgiving dinner? Me... the stuffing. OH ya.. by the bucket full. :o)

Your card is just wonderful! It reminds me of a Scandinavian Christmas and the ornament is so creative!

Hi. Thanks for the comment on my blog. I am tin mad, finding it a bit hard to find tins here though. I live in the sticks in the highlands of scotland and there is only one good craft shop in the area. Jikes!! That is such a good idea, must get a tin to keep my big cards in too. Hard work organising craft things, lol!!! Anyways i just love all your creations and have a good week. Eva
