I love traditional Christmas colours, and the latest challenge at Elzybells is to use ‘Red, Green and Gold’ on your card. I had the perfect DP to use for this card: it’s by Fancy Pants, and has a red background with poinsettias, in red, green and gold, scattered around the edges. The image I decided on is called Deck the Halls. I coloured this with Promarkers, and paper-pieced the girl’s dress in a scrap of the Fancy Pants paper. I tried to keep to the colours of the challenge as far as possible, with the exception of skin tones. I matted and layered the coloured image on to pearly gold, and then red, card. I added a strip of Cuttlebug-embossed red cardstock, matted onto the pearly gold, to the left of the centre of the card. I attached the coloured and matted image fairly centrally onto the background. Lastly I added a paper poinsettia, with punched-out leaves, to the bottom right side of the image, where it blends in with the flowers in the background.
