Winter Wonderland - The Holly & The Ivy - DT card

Good Morning my Dears,  It's Friday and that means 1 more sleep till the weekend. lol.  Can you tell I'm desperate!!!  I've not had a great week so I'm hopeful that the weekend gives me a chance to chill out a little.

Anyway I'm here to tell you that it's time for another wonderful challenge over at Winter Wonderland. This week the lovely Marianne is your hostess and she has chosen the theme of Holly/Ivy you can use both or either whichever you have to hand, but we must see at least one on your creation to qualify for the prize.

I've used the gorgeous papermania A Silent Night papers, it's covered with holly and has lovely little raised berries on it. I've also popped on a tiny sentiment with holly on it.

My Image is a WOJ by Elizabeth Bell and she is called Musing Melinda.  I stamped her onto a tag and coloured her with Promarkers. The sentiment has been heat embossed with Heat it Up silver embossing powder.  You can find the full recipe for my card below this post.

Our fabulous Sponsor this week is none other than Simon Says Stamp who is giving one lucky winner a $15.00 gift certificate to spend in store.


Do pop over and take a peek at the wonderful designs my teamie friends have created for you this week.

Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope you all have a wonderful day and weekend.
