Red and white Christmas

'Red and white' was the theme chosen by Sylvie for the Christmas Card Club challenge for today. The sketch for Christmas challenges with sketches 44 (please click on the link to see the sketch) was perfect for using up narrow pieces of Christmas paper offcuts and I've used a piece of the lovely red and white ribbon that I got on a market stall some time ago. The thick felt reindeer with the lovely gingham bow is from The Ribbon Girl (it was part of a prize I won recently) - I've been waiting for an opportunity to use this! Even the white backing to the reindeer was from an offcuts box. With the addition of a sentiment from stash, the card was done. Another catch up for Facebook Sunday's with Santa - this time for today's 'plain and simple' (only got two weeks to catch up now).
