Flourishes Christmas

Amaryllis Christmas challenge2
Welcome to the June Christmas Spirit Challenge! This month's 
challenge is an Inspiration piece to get you in the Christmas spirit early. 
This week I chose to use the set A Year In Flowers 3.
I also used this awesome Braided Trim from the Flourishes ribbon
collection.  It is available here.  Flourishes has their
Copic Collections which I used to color the flowers. I
also used Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.. I LOVE this paper..
In the corners I used the Basic Grey Rhinestones.

 The rules are simple -- be inspired by this photo:

For all the details on this 
Challenge head over to the Flourishes Forum on Splitcoaststampers. We 
have our winner for the May Challenge over there 
also, so be sure to check it out! The winner will get a Flourishes 
Christmas Stamp Set of their choice. 
Hope you make time to play with us this month!
