I have chosen Red, Ribbon and Pearls for my DT card.
The Christmas wreath stamp set is by Craftwork Cards, stamped in black Memento and coloured with various shades of red Promarkers. I've also used some of the tiny stamps in the set to stamp onto some white CC Card Candi, and added red seam binding and pearls.

Hello everybody, its a ONE LAYER challenge this week at Less Is More, entitled ALL IN A ROW.
The bauble stamps are by Stampin Up!, scallop edge stamp by Paula Pascual, sentiment by Hobby Art. I stamped the baubles, scallops and sentiment with TH distress inks, drew the strings and bows by hand and added a touch of glitter glue.
Hi everyone, wanted to take a break from making Christmas cards so I made this using the Color Throwdown colours. The photo isn't very good and really doesn't do it justice, so I've taken another, not sure if this one is any good either! Feels like its been dark nearly all day.
The bird on a branch (Stampendous snow bird) was stamped with black Memento and coloured with pencils, with a little added sparkle courtesy of glitter gel pens on the snowy berries.
Please do check out the fabulous cards by the other DT members HERE. Thank you to everyone who submitted their gorgeous entries for the red and white challenge last week and we look forward to seeing your lovely creations - anything you like so long as its CAS!
I've made another card for the Less Is More week 94 challenge to make a card using HARDWARE.
I've cut a little tag from white card, used a red Promarker and ruler to make the edge, the holly leaves were cut freehand and the holly berries attaching them to the tag are silver brads coloured red.**
The robin in stocking and sentiment stamps are by Hobby Art, coloured with Promarkers.
Thanks for looking.
** TIP: you can use any alcohol pen or ink such as Promarkers, OHPs to colour silver brads and peel-offs, plastic buttons or any non-porous surface.

Hi everyone, just time to squeeze in a couple more cards for One Layer Wednesday, the challenge this week is to use RED, GREEN and GOLD/YELLOW. I wanted to experiment with my Paula Pascual Christmas stamps.
For the second one, I've stamped freehand (don't think its too bad!) and used a darker shade of red. Wanted to play a bit longer and make a 3rd but I've run out of time.
