Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge number 10 - Christmas Colours

Hi, today I am sharing my card for this weeks Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge.  This weeks Challenge is to create a card in Christmas Colours

I love the zing of ice blues and whites and the warmth of deep reds, at Christmas but for this challenge I went all traditional and headed for the green/red/gold combination that just screams CHRISTMAS!!

Here's a shot from a different angle - I think all the bling on this card really played havoc with the camera flash!!  Needless to say I am asking Santa for a light box... assuming I'm on the nice list :-) The border round the image is actually gold mirri (not used in ages!) although it looks a bit green in the picture :-(

For once I haven't used any papers - it's all cardstock, but I really like the clean lines that this gives

The image is one of the new Gayle Bond/Scrapbook Sisters Digi Stamps - Holly Lantern - I'm really sorry it's yet another awful photo - there is a candle in there!!

I used a quickie glue pen to adhere embossing powder to the lantern and heated it from the back to stop me scorchin it (note to self - need better quality gold embossing powder - this is some that I bought when I first started crafting and it never melts properly!), then coloured the leaves, berries and candle with copics, before adding glossy accents.  Once it had dried I cut it out, then stuck it on cream CS that I had embossed with my brick Tim Holtz embossing folder and dabbed with Antique Linen distress inks
