Red and Green Christmas...

Evening Everyone
I am at the stage of needing some fairly quick christmas cards as still got so many to do.
Today's card is using traditional (or what I term traditional) christmas colours - red and green with the addition of silver.
This image is a stamp from Wild Rose Studio and I just love it.  Have coloured this in using my promarkers and then used lots of glamour dust on her coat and hat - well, it seemed rude not to.
The background was done by matting lots of little squares in red and green onto silver glitter card. The papers were from Papermania.  I edged all of the little squares with some faux stitching using a fine liner pen.  Also did some faux stitching on the image.
A closer picture of the image.
The sentiment was stamped onto white card and I used a cocktail stick to try and make it look a little like a sign.  Finally, added a glitter flourish and some silver card candy.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - use sketch provided
Dream Valley Challenges - 20 use some stitching
I love promarkers - 93 anything goes
Crafty Pad - 148 festive red and green and silver or gold

Thanks for looking and look forward to reading any comments.

Wow, look at all that fabulous sparkle! I always say you can never have too much sparkle on a Christmas card! I like the faux stitching, too, I always think it's so useful for adding a wee bit of definition.

Thanks for joining in at Dream Valley, too!

love, MagsB x
