Whiff of Joy challenge - Red, Cream and another colour

Yay it's Wednesday again and that means another challenge at Whiff of Joy Challenge blog!! This week we have a colour combination for you, red, cream and another colour. I have chosen purple as I love red and purple together...totally gorgeous!!! I decided to have a go at an easel card, will have to make more of these they are so effective!

It had to be a Christmas card with these rich colours and so I have inked up the super cute Henry with Bauble again. I love colouring the bauble and making it look nice and shiney! I've used a mixture of papers, the gorgeous cream and red spotty paper is My Minds Eye and the purple and red papers are from Basic Grey Euphoria collection. I have also used some gemstones cardstock.

I had great fun on Thursday visiting Hobby Craft for the first time....oooohhh I didn't want to leave!!!! The gorgeous rose and the little spray are both from there, the rose has been spritzed with glimmer mist.

The sentiments have been put together with some rub on letters and I have glimmer misted the "with love".

As the base of the easel closes under the card when folded I couldnt' add too much decoration, just a couple of star charms which I have snipped the rings from and a swirl of gems. I have left space for a message underneath the "at Christmas".

This is how the card looks when it is closed. Hope you like it and can join us this week, have a look at the rest of the DT's creations they are truly stunning! x
