Gruffies and Guest Challenge Blog - November 2015 - Anything goes or the option of RED OR GREEN OR BOTH

 Today it is time for me to show you another card for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.

 The topic for October 2015 is "anything goes with the option of red or green or both".

Don't forget you do have the option of anything goes plus if you do use the optional theme (this month it is "red or green or both") you will get 2 chances in the prize draw.

Don't forget to enter the challenge you MUST use a House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies image.
This month we are very lucky to have our sponsor, Di's Digi Stamps.  The lucky winner will get a $10 voucher to spend in their store.
For my card I have gone for the colour scheme of red and green.  I have used one of my favourite Joanna Sheen House Mouse images that I had in a decoupage set some years ago.  It's now time to stop looking at it and make it into a card.  Is anyone else like me and needs to keep some images to look at for a long while before using?

The backing paper I printed off from a CD last year and unfortunately didn't write on the back where it came from so I apologise for not linking to the company.

I have made the decoupage up using 1mm pads.  It's sad that we have to make things so low but when it comes to the cost of posting cards we have to go thin and have the cards with more frills for those that can be hand delivered.

I have finished the card off with some red with a gold edge ribbon, sentiments off the decoupage sheet, a wooden heart coloured in with a red Graph'it pen and some gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
