April 2020 Week 2 or 14th of 52 CCT blog color challenge

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity! This week's love is being able to get another Christmas card made for my growing stockpile for this December!!! Yes, #14 is made and 38 to go!!! Did I do my math correctly?!?!?!!!


Bright Joy Merry Christmas!= #14-2020 for 52 CCT

*Note: please stick to just red and white; no other colors, not even black or green; the red can be any value of red or a mix of red values--but still reds

link for 52CCT14-20


Some design notes:
a. the dark red base card (w/ matching envelope) = The Paper Source

b. sketch changes: the Merry Christmas sentiment tag is to replace the 3 'ribbon tails'; and then I've added embellishments like the row of gems, the red glitter heart and bow

c. sketch layout is loosely based on last week's 52CCT prompt, so here's the sketch design for a refresher of what that looked like=

This card's photo or posting will be shared/linked to these other challenge blogs and Facebook groups:
a. The 12 Months of Christmas Link-ups challenge blog; just entering normal/regular anything Christmas goes (not the optional twist of blooming botanicals)

b. Merry Little Christmas Challenge blog; Anything Christmas Goes for April 2020;

c. Paper, Paper, Paper & Design Team Calls group on Facebook; a sharing group of crafting bloggers

d. Mixed Media Creativity group at Facebook; a private group of artists and crafters who like to mix it up; my mediums= cardstocks & papers, gems, glitter foam stick-ons, red ink on edges of papers, white paint pen to add little dots of snow around the perimeter

Crafting in the USA heartland,
