Merry Monday 178

Hey Friends, The Christmas card push is on, is it for you?

 I'm playing with the Merry Monday Challenge 178 . The challenge is to make a card with Red and Gold. Following the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 422 (loosely), I made a A2 card base from Oatmeal card stock and added 2 mats using Bo Bunny's Christmas Collage paper.
 I added a tag that was stamped with a sentiment from Waltzingmouse. A bow was added made from Lawn Fawn Gold bakers twine. I die cut the poinsettia from matte gold card stock (IRL it shines) with SB dies and added a golf pearl. 

Some Challenges I'm submitting to are:

52 Christmas Throwdown -Previous Theme #1 Christmas Flowers
Aud Sentiments -Bingo, I used Patterned paper, Flowers, Die Cut
Creative Knockouts -Lace, Ribbon or Twine
Time Outs Challenge 43 -Christmas with option pink and purple
Scrap-Craft-Inspiration-15 -Shabby Chic or Vintage
Thanks for visiting!
