Gold and cream with a hint of red

For the challenge this week on the Allsorts blog you have to use Gold and cream with a hint of red, now I have not found this easy because I rarely use Gold but I was pleased with how the card turned out in the end and was fairly quick to make too, which you sometimes need when making Christmas cards. I have used a Magnolia word stamp for the background and a Sara Kay stamp for the image. Colouring was done with copics and I got my glitter out to bling it all up a bit. The flower is a die and the sprigs a punch, all the items I have used can be found at Sirstampalot.
I would like to say thank you to Allsorts for asking Sirstampalot to be quest designer because I have really enjoyed making the cards.
