rudolph the *RED* nosed reindeer!

don't you love our title at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ this week? can you guess what the prompt is? i'll give you a hint: the caps and asterisks give it away. because we're not asking for critters, we're lookin' at a color here... *RED* to be specific! here's my (red!) card, now:

(vintage: red doily and santa (who's scanned from an old greeting card, re-sized slightly smaller, and printed on photo paper; patterned paper: my mind's eye, dcwv, echo park and what i think is sadly the last decent sized chunk of sei red velvet paper... sigh... i loved that stuff!!!; stickers: reminisce, daisy d's and a mindy terasawa digital bird, leftover from another project; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)

i used the current sketch at seize the sketch, i think you'll agree that it's rather amazing, a fact which the cards of amy and jessi (and the rest of the marvelous dt!) illustrate perfectly! (i've rotated it 90 degrees to the left, as you can see.)

and now why not head over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and see the gorgeous (red!) goodness stephanie has produced for you, and start planning your own (red!) card! ♥
