Roast dinner day's here again, but that doesn't stop the challenges. Over at THE CRAFTY PAD the challenge this week is to use the colours Red and Green. It doesn't have to be a Christmas card, but of course, we expect to see lots of them.

Our lovely sponsor this week is JOANNA SHEEN and the prize is a £10 voucher to spend in her store.

The design team all used the image Rodney and Robin and it's available to buy at the CRAFTY PAD SHOP.

The first thing I did when making my card was to change the colour of 'Merry Christmas' to green in Photoshop and then printed it out and coloured it in with my Promarkers. I cut a strip of red card and put it through my bug to layer over the background paper. The holly panel was stamped with a little clear stamp that came with a magazine recently and I dotted the berries red. The ink was from a large Fiskars dye ink pad in Hunter Green and I inked the edge of Rodney and Robin using the same. A little glitter was added to the berries and to Robin's hat.

Finally, I added a strip of red ribbon with canes on, 3 metallic nail heads and the gorgeous Poinsettia which is from Prima Marketing.
