MERRY MONDAY RED & GOLD

The challenge this week on Merry Monday is to use red and gold on a Christmas card and I'm delighted to be their guest designer.  





I embossed my new Spruce and Sprigs stamps in gold and also for the gold embossing on the Mondo Poinsettia (HA gold). Colored it with Distress marker (fired brick) and Zig brush marker (carmine).  Little yellow seed beads are in the middle of the flower.  The background scribble paper is from PTI

Check out the challenge this week from Merry Monday - it's a great way to get your holiday cards done ahead of time.  

Thanks for stopping by and love to read all your comments.  Betty
