Papertrey October Blog Hop

The challenge for the blog hop this month is to show our holiday cards/gifts/wraps etc and I thought I would combine this with Dawn McVeys Raspberry Suite colour challenge - such pretty colours this time around.

I wanted to try out a clean and simple design for Christmas this year that would be good to make lots of at one sitting. I still think this idea is a work in progress - the new leaf colour centres for the poinsettias looked flat so I blinged them up a bit and I need to perfect my line drawing but I thnk it has a future!!


















I coloured the flowers with Copic markers after stamping them with memento rich cocoa - all the other supplies are by Papertrey.

Thanks for stopping by tonight!
