CHNC challenge 255: red and green must be seen

A new challenge starts this morning on my CHNC blog - for CHNC challenge 255 I'm saying that 'red and green must be seen' - a little or a lot - and any other colours can be used too if desired.

So this is my card with a holographic red shiny background with stars (very hard to get a photo, especially as this wasn't done till the evening before the challenge leaving no daylight to help). The three squares featuring stamped and embossed pieces of poinsettia were upcycled from a card that was received ages ago. I think there actually was a fourth square ... but somehow it's got lost, so I thought the sentiment strip with a couple of Poundland poinsettias would fill the gap nicely.

This is also for:

  3. The sentiment and poinsettia flowers fill the gap perfectly Hazel, I wouldn't have known there was a piece missing unless you'd said something... it's a lovely design. I really like the fabulous background paper you used, it's so sparkly and would catch the light perfectly. Great job!
