52CCCT August Color Challenge

The color challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown for this month is Red &
Metallic Gold.  I don't know about you but only using 2 colors is quite a
challenge for me.  But I thought I would give it a try.

Here's what I came up with -

Although we are able to use black or white with the red and gold, I opted not to, well
except for the black Merry Christmas sticker.  I embossed the 3 panels with a
Cuttlebug border embossing folder.  I thought a little texture would be better than
just the flat red.  Used one of my favorite border punches from EK Success and
the Spellbinders Picot Edge Circle die and Poinsettia die.  I added some jewell
border dazzles and regular jewell dazzles to finish it off.  I think it turned out okay!?!

I'm also entering this card in the Holiday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
