Make your own flowers at fab'n'funky Challenges

Hello my blogfriends
and a special hello to my new followers - lovely of you to join me!

Todays challenge at Fab'n'Funky Challengesset by our flower crazy Wendy! is
Make your own flowers
and this week weare being sponsored by the fabulous Doodle Pantry

I've finally given in and jumped on the Christmas bandwagon! - so heres another one off the list but still an awful long way to go I know I'll still be finishing off those final Christmas Eve deliveries this year - same as usual.

I used  dark green card for the base of this one for a change - got to go with those Christmas colours and of course its a round easel card but I thought it fitted this image perfectly. It looks a bit wonky in this picture but its quite straight - unlike my photography skills!

Here's what I did....

Image and We wish you a Merry Christmas circular sentiment - Doodle pantry winter song birdies
Coloured with -copics and prismacolor pencils
Paper - Anna Griffin - from yeeears ago
Die cut circles and poinsettia die- spellbinders
Small circular sentiment - Lili of the Valley
Gems and paper bow with bell - from my stash
Glitter - Martha Stewart glitter glue
Glitter paper (flowers) - Create and Craft

Challenges I'm entering with this card

Die cutting divas - Christmas in july
Tip Top Tuesday - All about circles
Hooked on craft - Christmas in july
Stampavie and more- Christmas in summer
