Merry Monday #109 - Bonnie's Christmas Flowers

Hello Friends,
Today we have a new challenge at Merry Monday from Bonnie, who is challenging us to use Flowers on our Christmas cards.  I wanted to use my new WPlus 9 Fresh Cut Floral Stamps and Dies for my card this week and I created a spray of flowers and berries.  To complete each piece I die cut the pieces first and then stamped three times in three different colours.  I found it difficult to get correct placement of the stamps and so I placed the die cuts on a dark piece of card so I could see the die cut which made it easier for placement of the stamp. I also added the coloured embossing paste to the background and finished off with some Glimmer card, Sequins and Sentiment.

Stamps: WPlus9 - Fresh Cut Florals, Papertrey Ink - Signature Greetings
Card and Papers: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler Glimmer Card
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Strawberry Slush, Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Pear Pizazz, Old Olive
