What's Red and Green and FUN All Over?

The answer is this fortnight's challenge at Jingle Belles where we'd like to see cards that feature the traditional colors of Christmas... red and green! Here's what I made:

I've been trying to whittle away at my Christmas scraps. One helpful technique is diecutting the smaller scraps. The other is to make paper-pieced backgrounds. I've done both here! Using my ancient Nestie diamonds, I cut a bunch of mostly red shapes, matted them, and made them into a background. Then I machine stitched around and added a green Memory Box tree, with a darker green shadow so it stood out better. Finally a (red!) sentiment cut from an ancient Echo Park Journal card and I was done.

Hop over to Jingle Belles to see Stephanie's awesome card and start making plans to link up your own Red and Green masterpiece!
