April Rudolph Day

It's time for the fourth Rudolph Day challenge of the year and I'm using another LOTV 'Festive Foliage' Art Pad image to make this quick card.

I'm also entering Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white matt
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Festive Foliage' Art Pad
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Twas the Night'
Other: Wink of Stella

I trimmed the red checked paper and covered the whole of the card front.  Two strips of green checked paper were attached across the card, matching the pattern.  I trimmed the pre-coloured image to make it slightly narrower and then attached it across the centre.  To finish I highlighted the baubles and leaves with a Wink of Stella.

This is such a pretty card. the tartan papers are very in style over here, I think it must be the same where you live. Your papers look great together!

Thanks for taking part in the April Rudolph Days Challenge.
