Christmas Season

That is the title of the new challenge over at the Sweet Lilac Challenge Blog, what do you think? you fancy winning a hamper of gorgeous flowers? 
All you have to do is make a project using any material and technique, but you must include some flowers from Sweet Lilac paper flowers. 
Here is what I came up with...hope you like it...

I started by drawing a circle in pencil to give me an idea of where to stamp the holly sprigs to form the wreath...I then stamped the Clarity carollers in Versafine ink, Vintage Sepia.
The wreath was formed by repeatedly stamping the holly sprigs in Lettuce and Pesto Adirondack ink using first and second generation stamping. 
I coloured the berries in with a red ProMarker.
The music stamp is from Claritystamps and was stamped, then cut out, shaped and stuck into position. 
I made an arrangement of the beautiful poinsettia flowers and glued this in position with glueGel.

Some ribbon, matting and layering, the ' heart monitor' line and the card was nearly finished....

The last touch was to place some Stickles onto my craft mat....and then with my finger I dabbed it all over the wrath. gives a lovely effect....why not try it....
You can find the challenge blog HERE ..also the inspiration from the other D.T. members.
That is all from me today....enjoy the rest of you Saturday ...
