Holly and Berries


Happy Saturday.  I am being inspired this am by the challenge at Splitcoast and the Pendleton Site.  I saw a houndstooth jacket and so my card was born.  
I began by stamping the houndstooth with Grey Memento ink  and added it to my card front.  The wreath is a digital image from Delicious Doodles.  I printed it off, coloured it with Copic markers then added Glossy Accents to the red berries....they just shine IRL and have such a great texture.  
I then stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts onto a piece of vellum so the houndstooth could still be seen behind.  That's it.  Pretty quick and easy.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

  18. This wreath is extraordinary! The coloring is out-of-this- world gorgeous as is every element.
    Karen, I've been trying to get caught up on all the commenting I've missed but it's impossible. You my friend, deserve better from me. I see your cards and go "wow" all the time. This particular card drew me in because I wanted to see what 3D elements you've used on the wreath. Low and behold you have no 3D elements!
