Red & White...Holiday Delight!

It's that time once again!

I have really inspired by the tradional colors
of Christmas this year, which is a bit unusual
for me.  I like to go outside the box to
create for the holiday, but I am 
deep reds and bright whites.

How about a no-stamping project this week?!
Another something unusual for me.
I love the KandCompany Christmas collections...
all of them!  haha
The center die cut comes from the
Brenda Walton Evergreen set.
Underneath that is is a tag from Martha Stewart.

I used a Sizzix 'Santa Bingo Card' EF
on the bright white background and followed up
with beautiful red and white DP from
My Mind's Eye.
The acetate sentiment is from Little Yellow Bicycle.
That ribbon is really fun too...
it's scrunchy, but soft...stretchy but holds it's shape.

have created some pretty sweet
projects to inspire you to play with these
gorgeous colors, so please pay a visit, won't you?!

that ribbon is just gorgeous Julie, but it's the dotty red and white paper you've used with the other layers that really catches my eye!
