Just red and white

     What a week it's been. Hello and thank you to followers old and new. There's so much going on right now that posts are few and far between, all will be revealed in time.
     This weeks Christmas card had it's starting point with 52 Christmas Card Throwdown's Red and White Only and it also qualifies for Sparkles Favourite Festive Colours.
     I began by stamping Penny Black's Crystal Wreath and embossing in sparkly white. I then coloured my card red with Distress Ink Festive Berries and added some clear gems. I tried adding a bow....didn't look good......then a small greeting....no, not good either....so it's going to stay almost clean and simple.
     There is a small gem and a small snowflake in each corner to lift it a little. It is then mounted on white card, then red, again coloured with Festive Berries. Finally it's on a white card blank decorated with tiny snowflakes stamped in Festive Berries.
     I have decorated the envelope with tiny snowflakes and stamped a greeting of sorts inside both using Festive Berries again.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Red and White Only
