A Christmas Card

This is a Christmas card that I made today using this cute digital stamp from The Greeting Farm called Laurie Bertie Mistletoe. M is for Mistletoe with an added extra of stitching is the challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge this week. The sketch that I used is from this month's challenge at Creatalicious. In addition to the sketch you were also to use stitching. For both challenges you could use either real or faux stitching. So I did mine by drawing stitch marks along each section of my card. I made my flowers by layering 2 red daisies together and then adding two mini red daisies together. Then I added a red gemstone into the middle. This is for this week's challenge at Winter Wonderland. Which is to use traditional Christmas flowers.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
