Rudolph Day - October

Good Evening!

I'm trying to get some Christmas cards done as I really am behind this year.

This card was pretty quick to make so I made several while I was at it using a Tim Holtz mixed media background die and a die from his Holiday Greens die set.

With a piece of red card for matting and some ribbon, all that I needed to finish was a peel off sentiment and a few gems for some sparkle.

I would like to join in with the Rudolph Day Challenge - October at Mo's  Scraps of Life by Scrappy Mo blog.

I'm also joining in at The Christmas Card Challenge #46

  32. This is just stunning, and love the negative spaces filled with this brilliant color. Adding the pine sprig added such a deep rich shade to the red & white, and thanks for reminding me about Rudy Day. With all that's gone on, I had totally forgotten until I read your Post! Good for you at having such a stunner ready for your stash! TFS & Hugs
