Winter Foliage WLSC

Hi Everyone, my DT card today is for We Love Stamping. This month we would love to see Winter foliage/flowers/trees etc.

I was lucky enough for my monthly subscription magazine to come through, as I was about to make this card, and the perfect stamps were in it. With a couple of others, I had already in my stash. I decided to follow this sketch. Freshly Made Sketches #477

I had a square piece of card in my bits box, so stamped along the centre with the long garland, then stamped the other side, next I stamped the Christmas rose in each corner. The stamps were coloured with DI's. It was layered it onto red card, I stamped the sentiment and a little holly, which was also layered with the red card. All then layered onto the base square card.

Main foliage stamps - Magazine Freebies, Simply Cards & Papercraft
small holly stamp - Stampendous
sentiment stamp - Card Making Magic
inks - Distress Inks, mowed lawn, forest moss, crushed olive, pine needles, tea dye, vintage photo, candied apple, fired brick. 
red card - Hobbycraft

   These are the wonderful prizes this month.
2 prizes from AALL and Create of coordinating stencil and stamp and A5 stamp set

It's such an effective layout Faith and the stamping in the traditional seasonal colours all work together so nicely.
