A Late Afternoon Post...

I should so NOT be playing today!! I soooo many things on the go and haven't been home all day but I still took 20 minutes to make a card...this one is for the challenge posted on my friend Janet's challenge blog. her challenge for this week was to make a card with red and green...'tis the season you know...
I had no problem with the image...just the paper!! I borrowed this Penny Black stamp from a good friend (thanks Sareeta!!) but when it came to the layout I was stumped. I almost always use patterned paper but it just wasn't working so I went back to the basics...real red and certainly celery (I love these colours together for Christmas cards).
I embossed the background celery layer with my Big shot and added some small red dots. the sentiment is stamped in celery ink and I added a red bow to the top. This girl so deserves bling so I added some celery gems and coloured in the champagne (and bubbles) with my stardust pen. The fur on her hat is filled in with scribbles glitter 3D paint.
Now I'm off to pack for my SAS least it is all cut!!
Thanks for looking.
