Colour Create

Inspiration Photo

Well this is definately a Vintage Photo!!  The photo is of me sitting on Santa's lap, when I was approximately five years old.  I was blog hopping (As I do) and I saw the Challenge at Colour Create Challenge blog. The challenge is to create a project using Red, Gold, White or Cream. (With the optional extra of Oriental or Christmas.)

I will also link to  Simon Says stamp hop challenge. Their challenge involves creating a project relating to either, Thanksgiving, Halloween, or Christmas.

The card recipe is as follows:

Paper: Dark Red (Striped)  Deck the Halls  Rusty Pickle.   Deck the Hollies (Spotted) Cosmo Cricket.  Red (Holly) Mitten Weather Cosmo Cricket.  Cream coloured paper from my stash.
Gold Vine.  I purchased it from Lincraft. Sold off the spool.
Gold Flowers.  I have had these for absolutely ever, and have always been annoyed with them. I actually found a good use for them!!

Brads.  From my stash.

Well I really must go...........    I think the dog is up to some mischief....
