Painted Winter Flowers

Hello everyone! I hope you are keeping warm and away from the rain. After such a mild autumn so far, this sudden change of weather was quite a shock to the system! Brrr... I hope it is so much nicer where you are! :). The positive side of this cold weather (if there can ever be one) is the fact that the proximity of Christmas feels much more real now lol. And with this in mind, I have a seasonally themed offering today.

Handmade Christmas card

I made a seasonal greetings card with a little twist :). Not everyone celebrates Christmas in cold, frosty surroundings (oh I would swap with them any day!) so I added some flowers to my frosty design :). Yep, that's topsy-turvy radical in my book! :)

Beautiful card! I love that stamp set and don't play with nearly enough, and you do such justice to it. I love the colours and that you've taken a non Christmassy set and made it magical!
