Christmas in flowers

Here's one of my new favourite images - poinsetta fairy from plate 60 from sweetpea stamps. It's such a wonderful image and a delight to colour. I love how happy she looks, like a kid on Christmas morning :)

I've been a little bit bored with my promarkers lately so I coloured her with oilpencils and then smeared it out with some thinner and a stompf (you know those pen looking things made out of paper that artists use for pastels) I used three different papers from different lines, but I thought they worked beautifully together. The right panel is made out of two of them, strips I cut and glued on. They are both from basic grey - fusion and fruitcake. The paper to the left is from the photo collection from karenmerieklip. I think I've had it for 6-7 years, lol.
I found a prima flower pack that I had won last year, but never got around using. The golden swirls on it matched my image perfectly, something I didn't realize until later. The gold sentiment is from a SeeD's pack and it's embossed with gold embossing powder

I LOVE the red/green/gold colourscheme for Christmascards. It looks so rich and gives them such a decadent feel. Like chocolatecake with chocolatesauce and truffles. YUM!

The challenges I've used are:

ABC Chrstimas challenge - X is for Christmas
Alphabet challenge  - E for embossing
Basic Grey - recipe (4 embellishments, 3 papers, 1 and/or 2 image/sentiment) I used 2 papers from BG
Card patterns - sketch
Daring cardmakers  - spotty and stripey Christmas
Everybody art - shapes
One stop craft  - Christmas cuties
Paper cutz - anything goes
Papersundaes  - adorn those corners
Pile it on - winter
Really resonable ribbon  - Christmas
Sew many challenges - red and green
Stamp and create - 'tis the season
