Nordic Christmas

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-xJ_JHjBOGtc/U3nNHyW8mYI/AAAAAAAAbkw/V2DRHxfX7Kg/s1600/Nordic+Christmas.png


Here is this week's challenge from 52CCT.
When I saw this and the lovely embroidered/knitted style I had to resist the urge to rush out and buy this kind of stamps. Partly as I promised myself to use only what I already have in my stash for this years Christmas cards. It's working so far. 


I decided to go for the red and white colour scheme and have repeat stamped in rows (hopefully) to give and embroidered look. Then I wanted an accent so added a heart stamped on red paper and embossed in white with a button and ribbon bow. 
I'm quite pleased with it but can't get a decent photo.
The stamps are mostly Inky Doodles from Warm Winter Wishes, Print Backgrounds 2 and the large heart from Primitive Angel. The snowflake and 'Merry and Bright' are Marion Emberson, which I thought went quite well with the others.
