The Holly and the Ivy - well there's some holly!!

Oh My Goodness I have just seen that I have won Debbie's candy whoppe thank you so much Debbie xxx
Happy Tuesday everyone hope your week is going ok!  Welcome to my new followers and a big Thank You to themxx I don't know about you but I keep making Christmas cards and have no idea of how many I've got or need, I think I need to do a quick tally when I get chance.  It doesn't really matter if I have too many because I really enjoy making them and that's what its all about I guess.  So on to today's card which I have made with traditional colours.  I was a bit pushed for time with one thing and another so I have used a picture to make it to save on colouring time!!

I think the image was a download from Twisted Papers Vintage Images, I've had it a while!  The DP is Marianne as is the die I have made the vellum poinsetta with.  The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat and I have distressed it with Fired Brick DI.  The corner is from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have embossed it with red embossing powder and added some gems to that and the sentiment.  The nesties are all Spellbinders.  The Holly ribbon is from a local haberdashery store.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sketch n Stash - Sketch and Stash (my image)

Thanks so much for looking and any comments you may leave it is always nice to read them, take care xx
