FFC09 - Red Green and Gold
It doesn't get much more traditional than Red Green and Gold at Christmas time. And that's the current colour challenge at Festive Friday.
I went slightly less traditional by using Mehndi Medallions from Wplus9. I embossed the largest medallion in gold and then coloured it with red and green copics. I dotted Stickles randomly over the top and then smeared it with my finger to get a very thin layer of sparkle. I mounted the medallion on a white circle that had also received the embossing/smearing treatment and then placed it finally on a red circle. (It's so pretty and sparkly in real life - I wish my photography skills were better able to show you that!)
This card is assymetrical - the interior panel has "Merry" from Classic Christmas (retired). The front of the card is cut one inch shorter, so that the medallion overhangs to the edge of the bottom of the card.
I love this multicultural feel of this - an Indian Christmas wreath!
There's one more week to play along with this Festive Friday challenge - I hope you'll get a chance to join us!
