Holly Jolly

Hello! Taking time out to make a Christmas card for some challenges.  I used an old stamp from Creative Clear Stamps Holiday Sentiments for my featured sentiment stamped in Memento Northern Pine ink and cut with Spellbinder Frame die and layered on a Red Frame.  I also stamped some additional Holly with Flourishes stamp (Doves and Holly)  above and below the words.  Used Red glaze pen on the berries and Clearstar pen on the leaves after coloring.  Pattern Paper is from Pebbles Welcome Christmas pad and Red CS for base is from stash.

Merry Monday Christmas Challenge: #170 Use Holly.  Holly in my Paper and Sentiment.

Great holly card. Like how the label shape mimics the curvy shape of holly ... very clever. Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers.

You've made a pretty frame for the sentiment that makes me hum that song! It was my mom's favorite! Perfect paper too! Thanks for sharing this with us at Merry Monday!
