My Time To Craft 'Christmas In May' Challenge

Good morning all. Boy was it cold yesterday I so hope it is warmer today.

This week at My Time To Craft we are challenged to, wait for it....... 'CHRISTMAS In May', well having only just got my blogger account back this week and with all that is going on here I haven't had chance to make a new card so I am showing you a card I made for last Christmas.

For my card I have used a Stitchy Bear image called 'Holly Bough' coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers and have added Glossy Accents to the berries. I can't remember whose the papers are but will edit it if I find them. The green section has been edged with a Spellbinders Edgeabilities die and embossed with a Cuttlebug Holly folder. The ribbon is from a Anna Griffin set.

6" Card Blank - Boyes
Card Stock - Bazzill
Embossing - Cuttlebug 'Holly'
Ribbon - Anna Griffin

 Promarkers & Flexmarkers Used:-
Leaves - Holly & Pine
Berries - Crimson & Berrie Red
Ribbon - Dusky Rose & Blossom
Branch - Cocoa & Cinnamon
