Just a quick post and I'll come straight to the point: as the title says, we'd like to see "Red" in your projects over at the Alphabet challenge.
I have created a pretty simple Christmas card this time. 
For the background, I used a rather childish holiday pattern with Santa, snowmen and a reindeer in a winter wonderland. I placed it on a kraft card base and stitched a red swirl to complement the scenery. Once the sewing was done, I placed a couple of pearls and gemstones to make it a bit more interesting. 
I haven't really done any Christmas decorating yet as I believe they shouldn't be put up until mid December, but my little white deer had a short appearance during the photo shoot. 

as you like it: favourite Christmas embellishment (my favourite Christmas embellishment is no different than my favourite everyday embellishment, which is pearls & gemstones. I like how you can add them literally anywhere because they're so subtle, and yet once I place them on my creations it looks like something was missing without them - a bit of bling, a 3D effect, a tiny eye catcher that gives depth to my crafting and brings everything to life)
