March Rudolph Day

It's hard to believe it's the third Rudolph Day of the year!  I've used another image from the LOTV 'Festive Foliage' Art Pad for my card and am entering Crafty Friends 'B is for ...' challenge (I've used chosen baubles, branch and blue),  Crafty Hazelnuts's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.


Card blank: 7"  7" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Festive Foliage' Art Pad
Die: Creative Expressions 'Contemporary Happy Christmas'
Card: Red and white matt
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Twas the Night'
Other: Wink of Stella

I trimmed blue and green check paper, layered them onto red card and attached it to the card front.  I trimmed the precoloured image slightly, layered it onto red card and attached it to the left side.  I die cut the sentiment three times from red card and once from white card.  To ensure the sentiment lay flat across the card front I cut two red sentiments in half before layering the them.  The white sentiment was attached to the top creating a shadow effect, before being attached to the card.  To finish I highlighted the image with a Wink of Stella.

I loved this set of images and I love this card, like the way you have used the papers to go with the baubles and the double greeting.
