A different Christmas card

Hi guys,  first of all I'd like to say thank you to all my blogging friends and new followers, I'm always so happy to see you, I'm back today with our challenge over at Paper Take Weekly and as you may have guessed it it's too make your own  paper flowers and punched die cut borders,
you can use ribbon too if you want,
sponsor is WOJ,

I made my flowers using a free flower die on a Tattered lace magazine and also a spellbinders die,
the lace effect border was made using a Noor border die, 6002/0260 available at Tracy's noor shop uk
the base paper is by Magnolia and I distressed the edges with a distress tool and inked them,

The rolled up flowers on the end are made using the tattered lace die and all have been made using 7 dots studio papers - Cold Country collection,
the next two along are made form the spellbinders flower set using different petals dies to get the different sizes, the ivy leaf die is a Marianne die I think,
I added a little stenciling too with a Dutch Doobadoo Geometric tiles stencil and some DD texture paste 870.000.000 The snowflake is another of the xmas Decorations from a local store,

The top flower and the right hand side large flower were made using the TL dies just used differently,

Hi Liz

It's Di from the Playground! I feel your pain and just left a lengthy comment on the Blogger Forum pleading for more clarity when they respond. Not sure if I picked up what your problem is but can sense your frustration chick!
