No Matter how you say it~ It is RED
This week's Challenge over at
Sew Many Cards is RED and only red!
Your image can be what ever colors you choose, however all you background colors and embellishments can only be RED!

So show us how creative are you!! What can you do in a monochromatic world?!?

I chose the Winter Bonus Ornament for my image, I have been wanting to play with this one since I seen it!

I used paper piecing to adorn the ornament. I started by cutting several leaves of the poinsettia in card stock and vellum. I thought this would give the leaves a little depth. The center is a group of beads and glitter. The green leaves on the ornament are also paper piecing, cut out of green paper and then darkened with color pencils, and a bit of glitter down the middle. The patch is cut from vellum.
The body of the ornament is covered in tiny glass beads, and then a light dusting of MS glitter.
For the background I used three different reds. A card stock, a metallic, and vellum. I ran the vellum thought the cuttlebug and cut it into strips. The strips were attached to the metallic paper, and then to the card stock. I added a thin "fringed" red ribbon across the top of the card, so I could hang the ornament. The hook is made from Wild Wire.

Do you like it, hate it? Tell me what you think! Comment link is above the picture!
I also entered this card in Tellen's Paper Piecing Challenge this week!
