I don't tend to make Christmas cards in a monochromatic red colour scheme - I tend to do the monochromatic ones in non-traditional colours!
I am entering my card into these challenges:
Jingle Belles - Joy To The Earth
Whoopsi Daisy - Anything Goes with a Whoopsi Daisy image
Love To Create - Monochromatic + ribbon
CHNC - Must Have a Hat
I have used another subtle patterned background paper - this is one from MME. The image is from Whoopsi Daisy and die-cut with my favourite Marianne's die. Colouring is with a combination of copic markers and Stickles. I have added some rhinestones plus a bow that is from a Lindt chocolate Easter bunny. I have actually had that bow in my stash since last year's Easter chocolates and hadn't got around to using it!
