Repeat Impressions Challenge.

I have been having so much fun with the challenges over at The House That Stamps Built and this latest one was right up my alley. I love making non traditional Christmas cards maybe because it is the height of summer here in Australia and I like cool colours or in this case I love the colour mauve.
This is the link to follow to see what gorgeous cards talented the design team made and also check out the entries.

Products I used for this card
  • Mauve card base topped with a lighter coloured mauve paper which I scored. 
  • The irredescent cream card stock was embossed with a Christmas Holiday Cuttlebug Folder. 
  • The poinsettia is from Spellbinders in an irredescent mauve. 
  • Added MS fern and Marianne die flourish. 
  • Spellbinders Label stamped with Gina K stamp.
  • Cream backing on lace.
  • Rhinestones positioned around the flower and sentiment.
  • Lightly sprayed with silver mist to add a little bit more sparkle.
Thanks for looking and would so appreciate it if you leave a comment for me.
