Handmade Flower for MAWTT

 Good  morning. The sun is shining here in Gloucestershire this morning and hopefully it will stay all day :-)
It's Thursday so that means it's time for another new challenge at
and this week the very lovely Pami has picked
as the theme.

We are sponsored by 

and 1 very lucky winner will receive
 I adore LOTV images - wish I could enter myself lol!!!!

I decided to make a Christmas card so I could make my handmade flower a felt poinsettia using my Marianne Createables die.
Image - LOTV Christmas Dance  coloured with PM's and a sprinkling of Star Dust Stickles
Design Paper's - My Minds Eye - A Merry Little Christmas
Border - Spellbinders Doily Accents - I used the 'waste' bit as well (the one in red under the fancy green one)
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards - coloured with PM to co-ordinate

Here's a close up of the image:
