A quick and simple card

This was a quick card to make - the centre piece is cut with a nestie using my cuttlebug. The red and green papers were free with a magazine. I'm linking for the following challenges:

No time to stamp
115: 'mass production' - create a card that is easy to mass produce (in fact, if you look at other posts on here - and some still to come in the next day or two - there are other cards that have the same kind of format)
365 cards 228: 'same but different' - 'Your challenge is to use at least 2 papers that have the same pattern but are different in color.'
Fab's big Christmas 48: 'free papers theme' (the green and red papers were free with a magazine - you'll be thinking that I buy a lot of magazines!)
Secret crafter Saturday 60: 'Christmas trees'
Corrosive 40: 'green and red ... let's get ready for Christmas'
Rosie-Dee 59: 'red, green and a bit of bling!' (choir boys round the tree is glittered)
Cupcake 68: 'red and green'
Incy wincy 20: 'red and green'
Tuesday taggers: 'a Christmas carol' - these choristers are singing a carol - perhaps 'O come, all ye faithful'
Play date cafe 07: 'green, white and red'

Why is it that the sentiment looks very different to the red of the paper, but irl they look much the same?

Don't forget: If you go to the top of my blog you will find the post about my celebration candy - you've got to be in it to win it! I now have 100 followers, so I'll be adding something more to the blog candy.
