No Red ...

Absolutely ...  positively NO red ... says Lisa ... who picked the theme of this week's challenge at Jingle Belles Rock  ... we're up to Christmas card number 7 can you believe it? ... So not using red was fine for me ... I tend to use it mostly as an accent colour anyway ... though a lot of Christmas DP's and images do contain red ... seems to be traditional ... my card still looks 'Christmassy' and can even be a masculine card which I like ... what do you think?



I used MME paper again ... jeez this lasts forever! ... but I do love it ... added some lace from Kirsty
and a bauble from Stella ...  and dressed the bauble in some pretty seam binding and a glittery button


I used a burlap frame that I backed with a scrap of paper from my 'bits' box and mounted the bauble directly onto the frame ... the sentiment is computer generated and of course I added a bit of glitter to my paper for that frosty look ... so there we are ... number 7 all done and dusted! Are you doing the challenge too? 
Happy Valentines Day to you all ... I hope you all have a wonderful day ... I got a dozen red roses this morning ... how about you?

Till soon ... keep safe

oh YES! this is wonderful as both a holiday card AND as a "masculine" (or really more accurately "unisex") card. that burlap frame is BRILLIANT...i would never have thought of that but it really adds so much texute and interest to the card. BRILLIANT all-round, actually! ♥

ps: so pleased you've been "treated" to gorgeous flowers...no one deserves a lovely ♥valentines day♥ more than you, missus! :)

What an awesome ornament ... and I love the frosted glittery sparkle along the bottom ... maybe making a masculine card should be a future prompt ... this one is fantastic. thanks for joining our jingle belles fun.

Love the softer blue, browns & neutral tones of your card. And your stitching is always impeccable! And the glittery frosty touch is sooooo lovely. Another gorgeous card.

Very pretty card. Love the soft browns, grays and the beautiful blue on this. Pretty ornament too!

Stella said...

That piece of burlap behind that ornament is a fabulous idea! Thanks for the inspiration :) I love the colorscheme of this card and I have a place in my heart for non traditional Christmas cards and this one is GORGEOUS!
Have a wonderful day...XXXXX

I love the colours of the holly paper - this is so lovely.

Rosemary said...

This card is lovely - I really like that bauble and yes, it could be a good card for a man. I think it is classic and elegant.
