Kraftyhands November Challenge

As it's the first Saturday of  November, it's the start of a new challenge on the  Kraftyhands Challenge Blog. Thank you for all the lovely, colourful entries into our last challenge. The lucky winners have been announced on the challenge blog.
This month the theme is:
Classic Christmas (Red, Gold and Green)
This challenge will be "just for fun". Unfortunately, there will not be a Top £20 prize this month. Please remember to be a follower of the blog and we look forward to seeing your lovely classic Christmas creations.
For my DT card I used the fabulous S for Santa CD. I just love the humorous images and traditional colours of this CD. 

I used a 6"x 6" card base. I matted and layered three of the backing papers onto coloured card in a simple layout and then matted one of the sentiments. The poinsettia is made from a Marianne die.

I used one of the Postcard Toppers for my image. I matted that onto red card and fixed it with foam pads to give it some dimension. I used a Marianne Christmas tree die and finished the card with a cheeky robin and some sticky gems in red and gold.
For your own fantastically fun Christmas cards, head over to the Kraftyhands webshop for a copy of this brilliant CD. It includes two different Card Making Sets, nine Postcard Toppers, Gift Wallets, Inserts, over fifty Backing Papers and more. There is also a gallery to give you some inspiration.

Please visit the  Kraftyhands Challenge Blog for a full set of the challenge rules - you have to be a follower to qualify for entry - and to view the fabulous creations from the talented DT. You can also keep up to date with all the latest Kraftyhands news and see sneak peeks on the Kraftyhands Facebook page and the Kraftyhands Blog.
