Pretty in Red

Two posts in one day, that's a first for me I think.  I'm cutting it a bit fine with my entry for Top Tip Tuesday this week so I'd better get on with it, here is my card:

The image is from Joanna Sheen's Faye Whittaker Collection and the papers are NitWit Collections Cookin' Cookies.  I matted the papers onto red core'dinations card stock and the image onto gold card and then the same red core'dinations.  The red border strip is die cut from the red core'dinations card and the ribbon was some white organza coloured with a red ProMarker.  I dismantled some red Poinsettias and re-assembled them to make one larger flower with more layers, added some leaves and a label to finish.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

 This is the inside of my card:

Image: Joanna Sheen - Faye Whittaker Collection
Papers:   NitWit Collections - Cookin' Cookies 
Tools:  Spellbinders - Lace Doily Accents, Classic Squares (inside card)
Embellishments: Poinsettia, leaves and ribbon from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Christmas Card Challenge Week 46 - Stickers (sorry I didn't use any) or any Christmas card

Don't forget to pop over to the Willow Sketchie Challenge Blog  there's still time to have a go at this weeks challenge, we have a Digi Collection worth £10 for the winner this week.
