Red Christmas

This is for one of the sketches for There's magic in the air magical Monday:

I've used offcuts from my Christmas scraps box (when I talked yesterday about my various offcuts boxes, I forgot that, of course, I also have a Christmas one!) - another card for Pixie's crafty snippets 30.

I've used one of the Kanban pyramage pictures that I had ready made up - three glittery reindeer, matted on to a Kanban frame (still trying to use these up).

The red was inspired by the inspiration photo for Festive Friday 28:

And this is another for my monochrome CHNC challenge 82.

This is also for:
