A Little Less Traditional Christmas Color

Getting a head start on holiday cards and wrapping is always my plan, not necessarily well executed. This time I'm trying to apply card challenges to Christmas themes in hopes of getting at least a little bit done before the last minute. Here's a card for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #46 and the color challenge at Pals Paper Arts, PPA15.
My card is a smallish, 4 1/2 x 41/2 gift tag card.

Sadly, I don't have any grey inks. So I used a marker to ink up the Papertrey Holiday Button bits stamps. I dry embossed the check on the red cardstock and then sandpapered it for dimension. The printed paper is an old Basicgrey release and the cardstocks are from a DCWV paper stack. Enjoy!
