Red and White Christmas

Red and white is one of my favourite colour combos and I haven't really used it much in Christmas cards this year so it was time to give it a whirl. And what better than to use the combo for this weeks sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.
Ok - red and white and a little gold!!

There is something about that Gold foil…I just can't get enough of it :-) Just as well there is plenty left in the packet! The DSP is from the Polka Dot Parade pack and the poinsettia is embossed in Gold with some pearls on top. The greeting is embossed in White. I have an aunt who is particularly fond of red and white so this will go in the post to her. I hope she likes it!

Card stock: Real Red, Whisper White, Gold Foil
Designer Series Paper: Polka Dot Parade
Ink: Versamark
Stamps: Joyful Christmas, Many Merry Messages
Accessories: Basic pearls and dimensionals

Happy stamping until next time,
