One Layer Wednesday - red and white

Susan's simply stunning OLC inspired me to play along at this week's OLW Challenge, to use only red and white or cream.  I have longed for the Stampin' Up Lovely as a Tree set ever since I saw it and finally treated myself to it; ironically it arrived a day after the gorgeous Stamp Addict trees, so it has been waiting for an airing.  As I found I didn't have a bright red ink I took the scary option of red embossing onto white cardstock, this is the second attempt:).  Sentiment is Elzybells, the shaped card shows a narrow strip of red card under its border.
My card is also entered for:
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - monochromatic
Krafting Kimmie - monochromatic
Crafty Ann's - clean & simple
Prairie Fairy - wet embossing
Floweret - Christmas again
Winter Wonderland - clean & simple Christmas card
Simon Says - anything goes
