Happy Hopping!

This is my first blog hop and I am excited to be sharing the following card with you. It is made with a great River City image set called Pine and Holly Set. This set includes colored and black and white images. I used colored images on this card.



The background image needed some dressing up, so I applied green Stickles to the pine tree on the right and the branches on the left. I hand cut the holly pieces and brushed them with Wink of Stella. I also applied some green stickles to the leaves. I covered the inside embossed snowflakes with Wink of Stella also.

Recipe:
5X7 red card base
DP from old Christmas pack that I've had for years
White cardstock: both inside and out were embossed with a Darice snowflake folder. On the inside piece I used a Tim Holtz embossing diffuser to leave a blank space for stamping the saying.
Red cardstock for matting image
Images from Pine and Holly set
Silver glittered tulle and silver ribbon
Green Stickles and Wink of Stella Clear Glitter brush pen

Remember: There's no Rules but to enter for the prize you need to leave a comment. 

Next you will head over to Aunty Sue. Have fun. We hope to see creations from you!
