A SWEET PEA CHRISTMAS CARD WITH A TWIST OF RED

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE
The weather here in Melbourne is really wet and miserable, so I have taken full advantage of the weather and nestled in my craft room for some creative fun today!
And before I begin I am now a DT member of Gingerloft (my first appointment) and I am really excited about that! Sorry just had to tell you that :)
Anyway, here is a card I made with my wonderful sweet pea image - RESTLESS THOUGHTS.
 Lately I have been using a lot of red in my cards, maybe it's because of the pending wedding on the 7th Nov, for Val (who is a red, anything, fanatic) and Miki..
I used very little in this card...
 For the background I used white card stock and 4 different types of stamps. Then I distressed it with 3 different coloured inks from Tim Holtz. The glitter effect of crystal rain I made with glitter glue and applied it to acetate and stuck it down with crystal effects. I used my blossom nesti for the backing of my image and copics to colour. Then for the image I used 4 types of copics from the red and
orange copic range..
And to finish it off I added a piece of red satin ribbon and made a bow then added 4 red gem stones to the top of the card.
It was such an easy card to make, the only hold up was the glitter dry time but I did that the night before. Anyway I do hope you enjoy my card :)
Now it's time to post it to my favourite challenge sites:
