IBS Challenge #37.....Red, Green and White.

I'm back with this week's challenge from Inspired by Stamping and we are asking you do create a card using red, green and white.
Here's a gorgeous Christmas photo to inspire you.

I used one of the stamps from December 25th Labels, I was spoilt for choice with which one to go for but eventually decided on the one with the snowflakes.
There are some beautiful Poinsettia's on the photo which inspired me to use one of the IBS White Poinsettia Flowers.

Stamps- December 25th Labels
Papers- Stampin'Up
Pretties- IBS Red Satin Ribbon, SU Rhinestones
