Workshop today

Yes, I know, posts are few and far between. I made three Christmas cards for a workshop which was today. The ladies liked them. I wasn't fussed on the Purely Pomegranate card at first, but it's growing on me all the time.
Season of Joy was the stamp set used with 1 1/4 & 1 3/8 punches. Purely Pomegranate, River Rock and Always Artichoke plus the Purely Pomegranate satin ribbon were the rest of the Stampin' Up products used.
This one used the Dashing DSP with co-ordinating coloured c/s, Read Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla and the stars are punched out of Brushed Gold Metallic c/s using the small star punch.
The greeting is out of the Many Merry Messages set. Added interest is the paper pricking using the mat pack.
I've had a lot of comments on this card and most people say that it is their fav out of the three. I like all three. The inspiration for this one came out of a Dutch magazine. Red gingham ribbon has been threaded through real red eyelets set using the crop-a-dile. The other colours are Confetti White, Real Red, More Mustard and Glorious Green. Greeting and Christmas Tree are out of Season of Joy and stamped with Glorious Green and Archival Black ink.
The Glorious Green piece has been embossed with a cuttlebug folder.
Thanks for looking.
