CAS Christmas

First of all I would like to welcome my three new followers.
I have made a simple CAS Christmas card and flat suitable for posting.
Papers/small pearl from stash---babuble wreath/bow and sentiment were a craft mag freebie set which I had given soooo double freebie lol.
Now you have heard the saying the camera never lies----WELL--- they lied .

I took 14 different pics of this card in different places all over the house and ended up with just this one passable one--either the dark red was almost bright orange the gold looked silver and okay a couple were blurred --down to photographer and not phone I suspect!!!!

Lesson learnt??? dont make a card with red and gold if you need to tak a pic!!!!!!!!!!
The tiny bow was added at the bottom because the die slipped in machine and cut off bottom edge ooops.

I hear you, I find red very difficult to photograph too and gold holo card gives off a lot of glare. However your card is very classy and I love that you factored in the postage costs, so important for all of us now.
