A lot of White Space

I saw the sketch on Mojo Monday and thought it was ideal to use a punch I've recently brought from stampin up but I need to mat and layer it. So I punched the curvy square shape and then using a thick pen I drew round it therefore I had a template for the red mat, which if I can find it on the mess on the table I plan to keep to use again.
It then became very white and red, I do like the dramatic look but I do feel that I'm all Christmas card out. I added the corners and the snowflakes cos I couldn't cope with all that white space.
A spoonful of Sugar is looking for a Christmas card so I reckon this ticks the box too.


$50 is the prize for a lucky winner on Simon Says Stamps Challenge, that a fabulous Christmas Present for someone.
