Beccy's Place Day #1 & CTMH Card Class 11/1/16

It's the 1st of November.  Time to flip the calendar and get busy making cards for the Month of Holiday Cards Challenge at Beccy's Place.  The Challenge for Day #1 is to use your favorite color combo.  I like to use a lot of gold at Christmas and pair it with red.  

Here I've fussy cut a precolored poinsettia digi image and used a quote from Beccy's Poinsettia Set.  I glued teeny tiny gold glass beads to the center of the poinsettia and gave the whole flower a shot of gold Shimmer Mist.  Two different embossing folders were used on the gold background and scalloped oval die cut.  The bow and red glitter tape are from CTMH.

 Oh my, Beccy's in Australia and already on Day # 2.
Maybe, if I put dinner in the oven, I can get another card made.  
I hate to get behind! 


  1. I got quite a chuckle from your last comment Debi... I love your dedication to the challenge!
    Red and gold is a wonderful colour combination at this time of year, very traditional and always eye catching. I love the embossed background, the two different patterns look great. I also like the addition of the tiny glass beads to the centre of the poinsettia and the shot of gold glimmer mist to tie everything together.
    All you CTMH cards are fabulous too.. you've sure made good start on your holiday card making!
