Red and White Christmas

I've made this card for the new Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog and the first challenge them is 'Christmas Wishes'.  This card is my youngest son's Christmas card, he loves cute animals so I thought this would be perfect for him.

I always find boy's cards difficult, especially choosing colours and embellishments so I kept it simple with just two colours, a couple of buttons and a charm.  The image and papers are all from Joanna Sheen's Furry Friends CD and the sentiment is computer generated.  Everything is backed with Core'dinations card stock and the image, corners and sentiment attached with Collall 3D glue to add some dimension.

For the inside of the card I re-sized one of the inserts from the CD and backed it on the same Core'dinations card stock.

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

Joanna Sheen Challenge - Christmas Wishes
My Time to Craft Challenge 169 - Winter Pals
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 195 - Stripes
2 Sisters Challenge 70 - Kids Christmas
Top Tip Tuesday Challenge 65 - Anything Christmas (Tip - Don't buy lots of different coloured ribbons, string, raffia, flowers etc., buy white  or natural ones and colour them to match your project with ProMarkers or other Alcohol Pens you will then have a perfect match and save yourself a fortune.)

Thank you for looking.
