SFTW - Use Some Red

Let's get this weekend started!  At Stampin' for the Weekend our new challenge is "Use Some Red".  We've got Saturated Canary as our sponsor so I'm sure you're going to want to play along for a chance to win a little shopping spree.  I know I would.

Non-traditional colors for Christmas cards is my favorite way to go but this fortnight's challenge is to "use some red" so I ended up using just about every color on my card.  I used lots of my favorite color pink and a little of another favorite aqua.  Too bad, I couldn't figure out a way to get some purple in there.  Oh well...

Here's the deets:
stamp - Saturated Canary "Nikki"
ink - printer; Ranger "Worn Lipstick", "Peeled Paint" (on flower edges)
paper - Bazzill "Ruby Slippers", "Parakeet"; My Favorite Things "Pink Lemonade";  Basic Grey "Eskimo Kisses"; My Mind's Eye "Wonderful Winter"; Stampin' Up "So Saffron"
miscellaneous - copics; My Favorite Things "Winter Rose", "Oval Stax", "Royal Leaves" die-namics; ribbon; Close To My Hearts "Pretty Pins"; Jolee snowflakes stickers; gel pen; stickles; SU rhinestone brad; bling

Here's the challenges:
Stampin' for the Weekend - Use Some Red
Fab 'N' Funky #196 - A Touch of Frost
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #236 - Christmas
Crafty Ribbons #73 - Spots or Stripes
