Flowers at Christmas

Hi there,

Here I am with the reminder post for our Christmas in July twist over at Creative Moments. I have actually used Shadow Manger for this card. It is a nice simple card. I have simply printed out the image with a small border onto the card base. I then stamped the sentiment (Personal Impressions stamp) onto the top of the silhouette and heat embossed with Personal Impressions White and Silver Sparkle powder. 

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
ABC christmas - N for new (digital image)/ O for old (sentiment stamp and embossing powder)
TIOT - Let it shine (the silhouette shines out from the black background - also sparkle embossing powder)
Jinglebelles - photo inspiration (I know what you are thinking - how? but it is the cosyness of the fire is like the manger, and the white stands out against the background, the same as my manger does)
 Polkadoodle - Christmas
Sweet stampin' - Christmas in July

I also have this floral creation to share with you all – made entirely from peel-offs. I used some stickers that I got from my mum for the main images, and then a glitter dragonfly and a papermania sentiment to finish.

This card is suitable for these challenges:
Quick Cards Floral challenge
Crafty Calender - Anything Goes
Alphabet challenge - I for insects
Addicted to CAS #115 Summer

 I would also like to share with you some pictures from a recent walk around the local nature reserve at Magor Marsh:

this one is an ant carrying another ant - but really poor focus :(

And finally I would also like to share a dino update:
Thanks for looking,
