Just a Touch of Red

Good morning. Hurrah it's Saturday and this one is a very special one for me as those of you that read my post yesterday will remember today is the day that some of my cards could be appearing on Create & Craft on the Funky Hand show at 11am - I have my Sky+ set (both upstairs & down lol!!!!).
Anyways enough of that and onto the real reason for the post - to tell you about the new challenge over at Allsorts this week, as chosen by the lovely Brenda - GOLD & CREAM with a Hint of RED
Here's my take on it:
I really enjoyed making this one and here's what I did:
I started by die cutting a snowflake shape with MM Slice machine and used this as mask when lightly inking the background on the base card with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
The snowflake border is a Martha Stewart punch - punched from plain card stock and then I lightly inked it with Brilliance Gold and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Sparkle EP and added a few red adhesive gems.
The Christmas Tree image is from Creative Expressions - one of my favourite tree images and has been stamped with Versamark and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold EP and then the edges have been distressed with Victorian Velvet DI.
A few punched snowflakes with a red adhesive gem and a touch of red satin ribbon and that's it completed.

Challenges I would like to enter:
Crafty Pad - Christmas
Craft Your Passion -  Add Glitter, Sparkles
A Spoonful Of Sugar - Die cuts or punches
Creative Card Crew - Punches
Paper Take Weekly - Sparkly and Bright
Fab 'n' Funky - Clean and Simple
Simon Says Stamp - Punches or die cuts
Stampavie and More - Christmas
Totally Papercrafts - Bling it On

Hope you can join in the fun with us this week. Don't forget to pop over to Allsorts and take a look at the rest of the scrummy inspiration from the talented DT.

Whilst blog-hopping yesterday I came across this post
and it would be great if you could take a look and see if you too could send a card to Daniel.

Hope you have a wonderfiul weekend.
Thanks for popping by.
