Crafty Catz Anything Goes with a Twist of Red

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Blogging Buddies and Followers, how are you all this week? Well what a week I've had, my son had 'man flu' and spread his germs everywhere, needless to say with my low immune, I again picked up something similar and been feeling yucky, just typical! :(   To top it off the laptop I've been using, decided to come out in sympathy and stopped working for a few days, thankfully my Hubby, finally managed to get it up and running! :) Didn't want it to end up like my PC did a few months back!  Here's hoping that next week will be better and go without a hitch... everything crossed :p

But first of all it's Friday again and that means a new challenge from us over at Crafty Catz

On a 6x6 white card blank, I matt and layered red mirror and centura pearl (after embossing and punching corners) card, along with a border of velvet and organza ribbons, with bow. I printed out the image in red for a change and instead of colouring, I added glitter jewels to highlight the white fur. To decorate, I added die cut vellum poinsettia and both mirror and centura pearl pine leaves with brad. Finishing off with die cut 'Merry Christmas' sentiment.
