Floral Christmas

Good evening all!
Wow how fast is Christmas approaching, is it just me or did October just fly!. Well hopefully I will be able to catch up with my posts very soon as I have exhibited at my last show of the year now so I can concentrate on other projects.
I wanted to share with you a Christmas card I have made using yet another gorgeous stamp sheet from Chocolate Baroque. I love this poinsettia image and once stamped it just cried out to be decoupaged.

 As usual I have used Promarkers to colour my image which was stamped onto kraft card then further images were stamped onto smooth stamping card and were used for the layers.
I tore the bottom of the kraft card, distressed the edges with Frayed Burlap DI and added some faux stitching before attaching it to a white A6 card.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Crafty Catz - #107 'Anything Goes'
Cute Card Thursday - #190 'Reds For Rememberance'
Paper Sundaes - #94 'Rectangle'
Allsorts - #128 'Anything but Square'
Passion for Promarkers - #125 'Kraft + 1 Other Colour'
