Lili of the Valley

This is my first entry into the Lili of the Valley challenge. The theme this week is
Red, Green and Gold

I was determined not to make a christmas card because those colours are used for Xmas a lot. .....well, that turned out to plan, didn't it? Yes, the card made itself as a Christmas one. lol.

I also took the Mojo Monday sketch as inspiration for this one. It is a fab sketch to work with. I did take a little liberty and just used the die-cut instead of another matted square.

Items used. Papers: Green snowflake paper and sentiment is a freebie with a magazine and the gold sparkly paper was recycled from one of my granddaughter's christening presents. Red paper from OneStop Card Crafts. Green and gold card from stash.
Ribbons: Celebrate.
Brads: I think are dovecraft.
Die cut: Lili of the valley - Scarlet
Glamour dust added to wings.
