Allsorts Challenge 490: Traditional Christmas Colors

Hello and happy Saturday! We're continuting the Christmas theme at Allsorts challenge another week, although this week we're getting a little bit more specific and would like to see "Traditional Christmas Colors", so reds, greens and golds. This week we have a great prize to give away from Swedish House Crafts, so hope to see you joining in for a chance to win!

The cute kitty hanging off a Christmas tree branch from the Penny Black set  Deck the Halls was heat embossed on Bristol Vellum paper using Versafine Onyx ink and clear embossing powder. It's then been colored with my  Zig Clean Color Markers and fussy cut using Cutterbee scissors. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the Penny Black set Season's Gifts on a piece of square white card stock.
The background was done using Penny Black's background stamp Christmas Story and one of the red distress inks (I think Barn Door). After adding the ribbon (this one by May Arts is similar and comes in a variety of colors), I added my image panel with pop up tape and used white card stock as my card base.
