Red, Gold & Green.....

Time for another challenge over at Sweet Stampin, and this week we want you to get out your ribbons :)

Here's my card, and all the time I was making this card I had a particular song in my head, it wasn't a christmassy song though...

I've used SU more mustard cardstock for the base card, it matched my 'gold' ribbon perfectly so used the same colour for the stocking too.
The colours used for the other 2 stockings are ruby red and old olive/certainly celery.
I punched loads of leaves from Garden Green cardstock, sponged the edges slightly then layered them to resemble a tree branch or garland hung from the mantlepiece.
Then of course I had to add some bling to finish :)

The current Papertake Weekly challenge is called '3 of a kind', we are to use 3 of something, so my 3 christmas stockings fit the bill nicely :)

 Team Carrie have made the most beautiful cards this week, we have 3 new DT members too :)

Oh yeah.... that song in my head... incase you were wondering, it was Karma Chameleon by Culture Club, hence the title of this post :)
Have a great weekend! xx
