New Challenge - Fussy and Fancy - Flowers

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a great week.  School is on an autumn break this week. Phil and I went away for a few days to Wales, on Tuesday it rained pretty much  all day, but Wednesday was glorious, we were supposed to going for two nights but ended up cutting it short, as more heavy rain was forecast for Thursday, which was a real shame, anyway today I will spending most of the day in my craft room, you can't ask for more than that!.

 Today, I am sharing a card I made for the new challenge at Fussy and Fancy. Our theme is 'Flowers', well that gave me another chance to make another Christmas card yay!!

This is Christmas Candle Tilda, I think she is so sweet, and I've used DI re-inkers to colour her.

I am sure you have gathered by now as I use them a lot, but the snow crystals are my favourite Christmas die, they are by Joy and available at Noor Design U.K.  The fern leaves are an old Magnolia die. For the sentiment I used another of the Joy dies and the text is from a Joy stamp set. The ribbon, pearls, pearl string, tulle lace, flowers and charm are from my stash. I have put links to the materials I have used at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Coat: Aged Mahogany, Fired Brick
Boots: Gathered Twigs
Candle: Old Paper, Gathered Twigs, Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany

Our two sponsors for this two weekly challenge are:

That's it from me today.

Thank you for popping in.

Have a wonderful weekend.
