It took me more than 20 years to appreciate the color RED.
I still remember (for I still have it) the first red cardigan I bought. I had never loved it as color in general and I couldn't wear it, despite it is said that red is the color for Aries.
I don't wear all that red now, especially in winter, but I've bought a few red things in these past years that are still in my wardrobe.
But the Christmas color "par excellence" is red.
Although I love to make cards in pink and pastel colors cards, when I make one in red or red and green, it shouts "Christmas!".
Like the one I've just finished:
Inspired by the current challenge at Crafts and Me Challenge where RED is the theme, I've used this gorgeous stamp and papers by Wild Rose Studio which I colored with Copics and glitter. I wanted it to sparkle, so I added rhinestones and, for a special touch, I added a satin ribbon tied in a bow.
I love its vintage feel and the light it has when Imove it under the light!
Wow... Christmas is coming!
This card is perfect for the following challenges:
