Boughs of Holly

Elaine here with another Christmas card featuring the Deck the Halls Stamp set from Oak House Studio......and yes, I am still singing!

This card uses two of the word stamps in the set plus the Holly Leaves from the Bumper Winter Leaves set.  I've tried to create a bough of holly, with ribbon and red beads overlying the Fir Sprig base.  The Fir Spring is from the Christmas Collection and is randomly stamped in a curve across the page with Forest Green Pigment Ink.

I'm again using the Citrus Lime Ink in a Bottle sprayed card (the leftovers from my last card), blended on some Forest Green Pigment Ink and embossed the Holly Leaves with Welbeck Green embossing powder. 

I've edged the textured card with Gold Acrylic paint and then added some Lime Green Stickles to create some sparkle.  It's then been mounted on some maroon card.  

Apologies for the photo - it's so dark and dull here - but I hope I've captured the sparkle and brightened your day a little.  Many thanks for looking!!
