Christmas Card Club - Red and White

Good evening all. It's been a lovely sunny weekend here but it's definitely getting cooler.
Sorry I haven't been around much, my mojo is still amiss and I've just got no desire to do any crafting. I'm managing to keep up with my DT work but that's about all!
Having missed the last two Christmas card challenges I've managed to make something today which covers all three remits. This week it's Sylvies turn to choose the theme and she's asked for Red and White. The two I missed were Pinky's Teddy Bears and Sue's favourite things (decoupage, ribbons and buttons).

The image is a Flowersoft decoupage leftover from about three years ago which I've highlighted with stickles. Sentiment from LOTV; dies from Spellbinders; ribbon and button from my stash.

You'll find the links to the other girls in my sidebar if you'd like to pop over and see their creations.
