Jolly Holly

Unfortunately as I write this post I am not feeling too jolly! Everyone in our house has been hit by an awful flu virus doing the rounds. After nearly a week indoors cabin fever is setting in!!

I managed to struggle from my sick bed to finish this card for Happy Little Stampers February Christmas Challenge.

This month it is :

For my card I used a new set of stamps I purchased at Christmas from PolkaDoodles. I stamped the individual holly leaves to create a wreath and coloured them using Promarkers. There is a really useful script stamp in the set which I used in first and second generation mode to create the background. I used Distress Ink in Old Paper to age the card. I thought the tartan ribbon added a nice festive touch.

I look forward to seeing your work!

WOW! Gorgeous wreath of holly. Adding passages in the corners of the card is an amazing idea. I love this Christmas bow :-)
