A Christmas Card in Turquoise and Red

My latest Christmas Card is done in a less traditional colour combo of turquoise & red, I used a fab free digi being given away by Fresh Squeezed Stamps to enter their challenge, there was a choice of three colours but I really liked the turquoise with the red one & used that for the rest of the card too. I followed a sketch from The Sweet Stop for their challenge, so having the layout & the colours decided the card came together quite quickly.  I stamped on the four panels and rounded the corners, added a sentiment and the digi and was just about done.  I then took an age trying to decide on an embellishment, I punched out some snowflakes, but they didn't look right and whilst I'm sure I have a small holly punch somewhere, I couldn't find it but then remembered I've got a Cricut cartridge with holly on it, so dug that out & finished off the card with some holly. I've got a friend who loves Cross Stitch so I've earmarked this card for her.
