November Team Blog Hop - Florals

The Pineapple Paper Artists are abloom 
with some flowery artwork 
to inspire your next creative project! 

Welcome from MARTHA'S BLOG,
or begin your garden tour here 
with my floral Christmas card!

I relied on the beautiful piece of B&T Duos paper 
from the Yuletide Carol paper packet
as a backdrop for this card, 
and cut the New England Ivy filigree strip 
from the reverse side of the paper, 
applying it along the left side of the card.
I then used the rosy zip strip cut from the paper 
to create two little flag strips in the bottom left corner
