Merry Monday Christmas Card Club #75 {Red, Dark Brown, Vanilla, Champagne or Gold with some shimmer}

Welcome to the Merry Monday Christmas Card Club!!! Thank you for playing along and for all the commenting that you did for each other!! We did have some questions asked last week and I posted answers to them HERE.

This week we want you to use Red, Dark Brown, 
Vanilla and Champagne or Gold with some shimmer...

Here are the Guidelines to follow:
1. Each week there will be a brand new challenge posted on Monday at 5am (PST).
2. Each participant must comment on 3 cards in the INLINKZ Gallery to be eligible to win. 
3. Neutral colours and any product is welcome. (Neutral Colours are all Stampin' Up Neutrals)
4. Follow the weekly challenge closely to complete a Christmas card.

For my card, I decided to use my brand new There She Goes goodies!!! I love paper piecing and using up bits of scrap paper from my paper bin. I kept the layout fairly simple.

Stamps: There She Goes {Warmest Wishes Stamp Set & Die}
Inks: Black
Papers: Kraft, Espresso, Vanilla, Poppy Parade, retired SU! DSP
Extras: Neutrals SU! Candy Dots {Vanilla}, Big Shot, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Champagne Glimmer Paper
