Allsorts challenge week 447/448 - Seasonal Flowers

Good Morning and welcome to our last challenge of 2017 over at Allsorts.
The theme for this challenge has been chosen by the very talented Mervi and it will run for two weeks.

Our sponsor is Stamp Addicts

and we also have this die from Sizzix

Mervi has decided that she would like to see Seasonal Flowers on your creations.

As it  is a two week challenge I did a couple of cards,  pretty simple cards but difficult to photograph.
Dies - Memory Box - Plush Poinsettia
Poppy Stamps - Small Blooming Poinsettia.
Sentiment - Presscut.

As this will be my last post until the 6th of January which will be scheduled
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all
The Fabulous Team Members at Allsorts
and my lovely, lovely Followers

A very Merry Christmas
and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
What ever you are doing and where ever you are
Hope you all have a wonderful time.

Thank you all so much for your support and comments in the past year.
I apologise for the fact that I will be unable to comment on your posts till the 7th of January.

Penny Black and More Challenge - CAS

This months challenge over at PB and more is CAS

This is a new stamp to me by Bee Crafty.
It is called - BEAUtanicals.
I have not had any stamps from this company before but it stamps beautifully.

Such a large image I feel it needs nothing else when stamped in full.
Although this is my second card made with the stamp and I did put a few gems in the corners but wasn't sure if that was still classed as CAS.

Thanks for popping by and I will be back on Saturday with my Allsorts cards, it will be a two week challenge to cover Christmas and the New Year.
