Two pretty girls

Firstly welcome to my new followers. This week Kate has a fabulous sketch for us at Winter Wonderland and I decided to use one of last year's lovely digis from Digital Doodling. I added glossy accents to the bauble and glittered round the edge of the image. The poinsettias were made with a nestie and a flower punch with added gems, Sizzix cut holly leaves and MS punched fern leaves. The snowflake is a Sizzix die with a star gem.
I am also entering into the following challenges
ABC Christmas O is for ornaments, options glossy/shiny
Polka Doodles Christmas in July
Paperplay Blue, cream + one
Aud Sentiments Choose your own Christmas sentiment
One Stitch at a time Digi
Paper Sundaes Make your own flowers
2 Sisters Christmas in July
Stamp Something Something flowery

The second card is in my favourite colour combo and is another of my new LOTV stamps. Papers are Kate Knight and Papermania. I used my MS corner punch for a change on one corner of each of the rectangles. Flowers were made using an MS and X cut punch with MS punched fern leaves.
