Joyous Holiday

Hello Everyone,

I made this card for the Hero Arts Flickr group challenge (November2010A) and I am also entering it into the CPS Card Sketches 192 challenge (here).

I stamped the holly in clear embossing ink and then embossed with white embossing powder. I colored each leaf with a green marker and then used broken china and scattered straw distress ink. After the ink was applied, I stamped the sentiment in clear ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I added the red pearls after the card was assembled. This was a fun card to make and I enjoyed picking out the materials to make this card.

Stamps used are Hero Arts: Classic Holly CG229 and Joy to All CL460. I am entering this card in the flickr HA group challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Have a great day and God bless.

I love this card, Sue! So pretty! I also embossed the holly in white, on a tag earlier in the month. It looks so pretty that way, doesn't it?! Love your beautiful design too!
