Red and Green

I'm still at home! Spent most of the day waiting for a kitchen plan to materialise and will now have to spend tomorrow finalising it as it still needs tweeked somewhat - think I've got it sussed though and just hope the bloke pays attention!
Did have one bright spot today when postie arrived with a packet of ribbons which I had won courtesy of Crafty Ribbons last week - loads of narrow satin in all sorts of gorgeous colours :)

Any way onto cards, here's one I made earlier:

Made using baubles nesties, a Creative Expressions Merry Christmas stamp and a tartan bow. Simples!
The design is a happy accident as the first time I made it I intended embossing the larger bauble and realised halfway through the machine that I was using cut plates.

Challenges entered:
CHNC - baubles
The Paper Players - red and green CAS Christmas
Christmas Inspirations - diecuts or punches
Pretty Little Ribbon - anything goes
My Time to Craft - punches and dies
