Whoohoo - another Christmas card to add to my tiny collection!!  This week, the girls over at Bah! Humbug! have decided on a Holly theme.  Fantastic for me as I just happened to have this gorgeous Bo Bunny Holly paper, (the leaves have a "crackle" effect, so for once it isn't my poor photography skills)!!
I overlapped the paper onto the spine of the cream card, added red ribbon, cut out some of the holly leaves which I coated with Diamond Glaze then attached to the bow.
The Merry Christmas stamp is another of my all-time favourites - from a set by HOTP. This was inked with Olive Staz-on and coloured with a red watercolour pencil.

Thanks for looking -  have a great weekend.  Hugs, Sylvia xxxx
