Penultimate challenge!

Yep its nearly here!
We are at the letter Y
Its Penultimate ABC Christmas Challenge for 2013!
Our challenge theme this week is Y for You Make it.
We want to see you make your own embellishments.... Ohhhhh
what will you make....?

Our sponsor this week is Stamp Fairy

I thought I would make a winter Christmas flower
loosely based on a Christmas rose... I have so enjoyed creating these flower cards and have done 2 in other colours... Its a favourite punch and not one I would use for its real purpose...
The Dress punch
Imagine it upside down...
The skirt becomes the petals.  

Yes a Dress punch... Click here to see more versions - Poppy & Lilac
Because the flower is intense the main card is very C&S
the flower is distressed with peeled paint and the calyx flower centre colours with spectrum noir and then when the flower was put together sprayed with spray adhesive and sprinkled with glamour dust.

with my card I am entering these challenges:
