Play Date Cafe Challenge #58

This was SOOO much harder than I expected it to be!  Red & White - how hard can that be??  When I dug through my paper stash, and found that most of my holiday stuff was red/white&green... or distressed red & cream... I became quite determined to do a fairly pristine red & white card :o)  So I went with some Jingle patterned papers, taught myself how to make a folded medallion, and pulled out the sewing machine.  Even though I quite like my card, it's not Christmassy enough for me...  I may glitter it up a bit.  Here's our Play Date Cafe inspiration:
Patterned papers are Jingle; Cardstock is White Daisy & Tulip; Stamp sets are Evergreen & Just for the Holidays; - all CTMH.

Such a lovely card, it's great that you persevered with it. Sometimes we think colours will be so easy until we check our card stash! You've done a great job, gorgeous medallion too! Thanks for playing along with us at the Play Date Cafe this week!
