'tis nearly Christmas Time

It really is 'Nearly' Christmas Time as December is upon us. 
It's the first day of Summer here in Australia so
for our Anything Goes Watercolour Challenge at
Happy Little Stampers and our Option being Christmas
I went softly softly with my watercoloured floral card.
Too hot here for the traditional reds and greens.

It's hard to believe but the only item I used to
colour my Large Christmas Flower from STAMPlorations
         is from Lindy's Magical Shaker
in Oom Pah Pah Pink. I heat embossed it in white then
  tapped some powder onto my work surface
 and spritzed it with water and painted with a water brush.
I lightly smooched the background with
some of the leftovers and added
heat embossed random text.
Die cut a simple Merry Christmas sentiment
and finished by adding some Little Birdie
Texture Embossing Paste and puffed it up.

Pop over and see what my Team Mates created
and join in the festivities by adding yours 
to our Gallery this month. 
Hope to see you there. 
As this is my last post for our 
Watercolour Challenge for the year
I would like to wish you all a
Merry Christmas.
See you in the New Year.

I love the soft look of this, so pretty and delicate. Happy first day of summer. I am sitting here watching a blowing blizzard and very happy to be inside. Seeing that it's the first day of December reminded me I better get my Christmas card to you in the mail, or you won't get it by Gotta love the postal system!

You and I were on a similar creative path with our cards, with such different results! Your flower and background are gorgeous.
