What's Red, White and Green all over? - our new challenge at Colour Create, boom boom!!

Good morning, bloggers!!   Grrhhh to Mr Blogger this morning!!  Was just finishing off my post for Colour Create for publishing at 8.00 this morning and he was being norty!!!  Lost all my text and links!!

 Not been around much lately, so sorry - it's that time of year isn't - busy, busy.  Hope I'm not boring you too much either with all my Christmas cards - still have another 25 to make!!  Eek!
This one is for our new challenge at Colour Create and our colours are RED, WHITE and GREEN with the optional extra of Snowflakes!!  The perfect Christmas combo as chosen by our wonderful Sylvia!

Hope you likey as we all did on the DT and play along with us.  What could be better incentive than the gorgeous set of stamps below from our sponsor for this challenge:

Aren't they gorgeous.

For my card I've used some more gorgeousness from Mo Manning, the little cutie that is Bella Loves Christmas which you can find here at Mo's Digital Pencil.

Not too happy with my pic on this one - or maybe it is just my colouring!  I swear her skirt seems more blended than this on the real life version!  The camera always seems to pick up every imperfection and I may have to revisit this to adjust!!
The senitment is cut from the same paper as the backing mat and layered up onto a TH Snowflurry border die cut.   The holly band is a fabric trim with dew drops for the berries.  Lots of glitter and a few pearls and there you have it.

I loved the colour combo as did my Colour Create teamies - take a peek at their gorgeous work here.

That's it for now folks, enjoy your Thursday!
