CRAFTY HO's RED and GREEN Challenge

It's time for another NEW CHALLENGE this week at CRAFTY HOs' CHALLENGE and this week we have a color challenge.  Our color challenge is to use RED and GREEN on your card.  You have until 11:59pm EST on Sat., December 18 to enter your card at CRAFTY HOs' CHALLENGE.  Can't wait to see what you create!

For my card, I have chosen this FABULOUS image from HAPPILEIGH SCRAPPIN'.  If you have not seen these images, you must go check out Leigh's amazing images!!

I colored this little beauty "Santa Jan" with Copics and Atyou Spicas and then cut with Nesties and decorated with Liquid Applique that I heat embossed.  The bag of toys is from the same set/sheet as Santa Jan, also colored with Copics and Atyou Spicas and cut out with scissors.  Base paper is textured Core-dinations red.  All DP is Cloud 9 Design.  Ribbon from my stash, ornament sticker is from Recollections (Michael's).  Sentiment is from Hero Arts clear set, stamped in SU cherry cobbler on core-dinations green and then ripped.  I'm really happy how this turned out and hope you like it as well:)

Challenges entered include:
CREATE 4 FUN - sketch
HAPPILEIGH SCRAPPIN' - use Happileigh Scrappin' image
ALL SORTS - last minute Christmas cards
CRAFT YOUR DAYS AWAY - punch or die cut
THE CRAFTY PAD - embossing
