Three Challenges in One!

When checking out the latest challenges today, three of them just seemed to go together

The colour challenge was to use Real Red, Old Olive, Kraft and White in a card, as these are soooo Christmas colours they fit perfectly into the Just Add Ink challenge this week of Just Add Christmas!

The embossed white background is spritzed in Champagne Shimmer Paint mixed with rubbing alcohol, this puts the nicest shimmer on the card. Next the tree and words are embossed with Old Olive then a mix of Dazzling Diamonds and clear embossing powder, the same has been done with the red ribbon only it's Real Red instead of Olive!! I've done the bell in Gold embossing powder.

For the tags I've layerd ovals onto one of the tags from the {114508 } 'Lots of Tags' Sizzlits 4 pack dies. this has the holly stamp from the {115776} Christmas Classics stamp set along with some rhinestones. As Murphy would have it, I've lent my Modern Lable Punch out to a fellow demonstrator so I had to improvise on the lables. Then I've added three {109110} Circle Fire Rhinestone brads to the top for added bling.

I think it came out quite well, What do you think?
