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:

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 106

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 106: anything goes with a twist ... fairies. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

For my card I used a Dazzling Ace Designs image kindly supplied by the sponsor of the challenge, fading this digitally around the edges and superimposing on a free background that I found here, changing the colour hues, adding the quote by A E Housman and the flowers in the corners.
