Christmas In July Spectrum Noir Blog hop

A few members of the Spectrum Noir team have gotten together to celebrate Christmas in July!  We have an inspiration-filled blog hop today, along with a few great prizes! 
 If you have arrived here from Jennie's's blog, you are in the right place.  
If not, pop over to the Spectrum Noir blog so you don't miss a thing!

Here is my contribution to a Fantastic  
Spectrum Noir Blog Hop....

 i love the way the Spectrum Noir Reds blend so well together
they give you a rich luxurious look to any of your projects 
i have used Neenha card  Core-dination Centrua pearl card  Satin finish printing paper  E craft 
all from Crafters Companion

the stamp is from LOTV 
the backing paper is from a Nit Wit kit ,fancy oval frame from spellbinders  GoKreate die for base card and matting layers
crystal gems ribbon and silver bell cut glass glitter all from my stash

my Tip
 for getting a smooth blend  colour the complete area with your lightest colour first  then go over with your other colours  blending out the joins as you go 

the colours i have used for this card are

EB1- EB2- BG2- CR10- DR3- DR5- DR7- CG1- CG2- CG3- GB3- GB4- GB5 GG1- GG2- EB6- EB8
BLENDER and white gel pen for highlights on his nose 

 i have had so much fun making this card 
you can never go to far on a Christmas card the
 reds and green are traditional colours of Christmas in my home
