Red, Gold (and Green!)

Happy Saturday, blogger peeps!  I'm back today to share another Christmas card:
 
 
 
 
I just wanna say that my picture of this card is absolutely horrible!  I couldn't get the colors "just right," no matter what I tried to do in Picasa!  IRL, this red is not quite so orange!  Be that as it may, this version of this card is actually attempt #4!  I was trying before to make it in this red and white, but each time I kept messing something up!  This version uses Recollections gold tinsel embossing powder for the sentiment, on the die cut candles, and on the layer behind the top red layer.  Matchy, matchy!  :)
 
Challenges:
 
Merry Monday #178:  Red and Gold (no green as my title would suggest...it just reminded me of the Culture Club song, "Karma Chameleon!"
12 Months of Christmas Link Up #11:  Sparkle, sparkle everywhere!
Glory of Christmas #71:  Glitter and/or Shine
Sparkles Christmas #59:  Christmas decorations
CHNC November Extra:  Anything Christmas
Crafty Calendar:  Sparkle, bling and embellish...my card has lotsa sparkle!
Papertake Weekly:  Anything goes
 
 
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and God bless!
