Hello again!  It’s color challenge week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, and we have a very traditional combination for you to work with: red, green, and your choice of either metallic silver or metallic gold.

My card ended up as a rather traditional styled card.  I opted for a classic poinsettia image for my red and green.  I used the paper tole technique on the poinsettia to give it some dimension.  Unfortunately, it also gave the poinsettia a bit of glare that I couldn’t avoid when I was photographing the card.  The large red panel is textured cardstock, which gives the card some subtle visual interest.  I did go a little out of the ordinary with the sentiment panel, attaching it diagonally across the card.  The sentiment panel is edged with a bit of gold embossing to coordinate with the gold embossed sentiment and flourishes.  A couple of gold brads finish off the card.
