Red and Green.....

...is the challenge over at CCT. I was just finishing my Papertake Weekly card with a great sketch by Dawny and went to look to see if the challenge was posted for CCT and it was!! Fab for me since I made this card which is full of red and green!! (I can't sleep that is why I am up so late!! ~ hence the dark picture!)
I finally used some of this crackle accents by Ranger and I love it!! If you can see in the picture I used it for the Christmas trees sign. It is so easy ~ you just put it on and let it dry. When it is finished drying it looks like this!! I just went over it with my sponge that has distressed ink on it!! Love the way it looks ~ you will definitely be seeing more of these!!!

Paper: K & CO. (Sweet 'n Sassy stamps)
Stamps: Penny black, CHF
Inks: distressed inks
Accessories: ribbon ~ Melissa Frances, button and brads ~ stash, skate charm ~ Rak, rub-ons ~ Creative Imaginations


Well thanks for stopping by and I hope your day goes great!!
