It must be getting closer to Christmas... Simon Says has Red & Green as their challenge this week. There's the chance to win their challenge, but also don't forget that Lorraine gives away weekly candy to those who enter the Challenge, as do several of the other Design Team members.
My card is one I made at Made By You's Macmillan Coffee Morning last week, I hope they raised lots of money for cancer care. It's a simple card that I can make easily, it's always hard work getting all those Christmas cards made, so one that's straightforward is always welcome :). I've embossed cardstock with the holly Cuttlebug folder and sponged three shades of green Distress Ink across it: Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Pine Needles. I wonder who gets to think up the names, aren't they evocative? The berries are coloured with a red Tombow pen. I used a glue pen on the berries and the stems and added Glamour Dust to them. The embossing is mounted onto dark green card. The organza ribbon is stuck to a wide piece of double-sided tape and more Glamour Dust gives it a sparkly margin.
I think I'm going to make a few of these, they look good for minimal effort :)
PS Last day to enter my Blog Candy! I'm adding in a mystery extra candy, make sure you've entered.
