This year my neighbor covered her tree with darling little red and craft colored decorations.  Seeing them reminded me just how much I love this color combination.


The little pinch of Stickles under the button gives a tiny bit of sparkle to the card while also helping to glue the button onto the wreath.


The card front is cut shorter than the inside of the card.  This allows for some of the designer paper which is adhered to the inside of the card to be seen when the card is closed.


And when you open the card, you still get to see some of the lovely red and craft paper.
