Red, green and tan

are the colors that Mona Pendleton chose for her very first color challenge!  I heard about it through Stephanie's blog, and since I love color challenges, I thought I'd give it a try.  I just received a new Hero Arts Christmas set, and here are the first 2 cards I made with it.  I LOVE these trees embossed in gold!



I also love that my Christmas card pile for this year is growing each week!  Thanks, Mona! 

Supplies: parchment, red and green cardstocks, versafine ink and Ranger super fine detail gold embossing powder, Adirondack cranberry ink, Hero Arts CL459 Merry Christmas Trees, CG222 Music Background, CL111 Hand Drawn Christmas ("Noel"),  Sizzix embossing folder, snowflake punches, Martha Stewart doily punch
