All my paper started out white or kraft. I made the plaid paper using the DRS Woven Plaid stamp and sponging. The bg of my main panel was stamped with Versamark and then pounced with chalk (I used the Pan Pastels Pounce technique but cheated and used some tan brown chalk from a stick rubbing my sponge it and pouncing on the Versamark stamped sheet music from DRS Designs.
Instead of the branches Patti and Kittie used, I went with holly and sponged the colors after die cutting them (love the Sizzix Holiday Greens dies). I went with a dress instead of a tree and added some berries using Dazzling Details in Red.
This is also for the November Fan Club Christmas Card Challenge which I just found out about (I can't wait to do it in 2017 and be done with all my Christmas cards on time next year) and you can find here:

We just uploaded together Nancy. Well, if this doesn't beat all. What a unique and perfectly put together card with so many extra touches. I would tell you my size so you could ship it to me to wear over the holidays, but I'm sure you don't make it in a Size 2!!! NOT!!! Awesome work Nancy.

This is wonderful, Nancy...and a perfect Christmas card for the fashionista! (One year I got plain black satin heels and glued velvet holly leaves all over them with a few red berries here and there. I had more fun wearing those shoes to parties and dinners.) Love how you did the skirt on the dress form with all the greenery.

Oh, wow!! I love kraft and red together, and you've crafted a wonderful skirt on that dress form with the holly leaves and berries! The soft music sheet background highlights your lovely main image! This is just beautiful!
