DCM - December Flowers, Holly & Narcissus

As it's the first dare of the month, we have our "Flowers of the Month" challenge over at the Daring Cardmakers this week - but of course December's flowers brings the series to an end - we do hope you've enjoyed and felt inspired by the theme. Next year we're starting a whole new Monthly Challenge Theme - so watch out for that at the start of January!

December's flowers are:
Holly and Narcissus

we'd like you to make a card taking your inspiration from either of these - we think we know which will be the most popular already.....;-)

So here is my card....

We recently added some new Holly & Berries to the shop and I knew I wanted to use these on my Holly card. I decided to use a darker red paper to match the berries and of course the 'holly' sentiment too. I kept an aged look to the card and distressed the edges and label with ink.

Supplies used:
Cardstock - Fancy Pants Saint Nick
Ribbon - Rancho Red Seam Binding, Cherry Red Bakers Twine from The Ribbon Reel
Stamps - WMS Say It Loud Winter Holidays
Ink - Distress Ink Gathered Twigs, Staz On Timber Brown
Other - Paper Doily, Holly & Berries from The Ribbon Reel
