Merry Christmas from the Divas

 


Merry Christmas to you all.....

It's Christmas Day and today I have a Birthday card to share!   My friend has a birthday a couple of days ago so I did a floral card for her.   

Our sponsor this month is Altenew. They generously will be giving our winner a $50 gift certificate to their online store. 


And our theme is Flowers -   I'm a big lover of Altenew products and have ALOT.   This month, Altenew kindly provided us with a Build a Garden set.  I chose to get Morning Aster set ... Just love it. 


I used some Altenew Grey ink to stamp the flower and then used the stencils to add the colour.  I used Altenew Burnt Red and Mahogany Bark inks for the flowers and Eucalyptus and Forest Fern for the leaves.   The sentiment is from Altenew Sentiment Strips 2 that I stamped onto a flag die (from LDRS sentiment stack die)   I used the matching die to cut out the flower.  The background was made with Altenew Dotty Circles 3D embossing folder.  I used the ink left on my blender brush to add some blending around the edges. 

As you read this, Christmas Day is almost done here in NZ.   Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas
