Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Red & Embossing

Wow...this month has whizzed by...and we've reached the last of our November Christmas themed challenges over at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, where this week we want to see:

'Red & Embossing'

We are sponsored for this challenge by

And the prize is 4 rolls or ribbon of the winner's choice!

The image I've used on my card is 'Bedecked Antlers'...which I coloured using watercolour pencils...adding Glossy Accents to the baubles. I used my favourite Cuttlebug folder...'Snowflakes'...for the embossing, on red card...matting everything on to black card. The snowflakes were cut using a Cuttlebug die...and I added a load of little black pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
