Something Red

As November draws to a close, so too does Christmas card production - well it does for me anyway!  So the choice is your's for this weeks challenge over at Diva's by Design, it could be Christmas or it could be any other occasion as long as you follow the theme which is

Something Red

And sponsoring us again this time are the fabulous Delicious Doodles, who gave us at the DT some lovely images to play with, (Big thanks,) and who are offering the winner as their prize.

So what you waiting for? Got to be in it to win it!

Now nearly all of us as the DT fell in love with the stamp called - Snowy Postbox , that's why you'll see it so many times on the main Diva's blog.  It's a beauty, as just perfect for this challenge.

So here's my card, with lots of embossing, layers & a die cut and of course my fabulous Postbox image coloured with pencils then decorated with flock.

Know why you fell in love with this stamp! Although you've put a few layers on this I'll give you full marks for retaining the basic white background so it keeps an overall 'clean' appearance! Thanks for sharing with us at Crafty Cardmakers
