an adventure in red & green

It's red & green & Christmas all over at Jingle Belles, and the June color challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown is also red & green (two shades) with metallic.  Of course, I thought I'd combine the two, and while I was mixing challenges together, I thought I'd add a bird for Holly Jolly Christmas and mix it all into the Craft Project Central Creating Pretty Cards sketch:
stamp sets - More Merry Messages, Joyful Christmas; ink - Versamark; Stampin' Emboss powder - gold; card stock - Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler,  Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz; designer series paper - Deck the Halls (retired); punch - Bird Builder; Big Shot with Chalk Talk framelit; Stampin' Trimmer with rotary addition and Tiny Wave blade

A great card Kathe. Love how you've used the colours, and the background stamping (I must try this).

This is lovely! I really like the pretty red bird and the way you used the poinsettia to create the backing label. Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week!

Great card using the colours from our 'strawberry' challenge. Love the 'crackle' effect the poinsettia creates behind the bird. Thanks for playing along with us at 52 CCT this week
