A Holly Jolly Christmas

It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Friends and our theme is Clean and Simple. I have used a fabulous image called Holiday Clip Art from Toadstool Printables who are our sponsor for this challenge.


I printed the coloured image on white card stock and and used an X-Cut Holly punch and a snippet of paper from my stash.  I added 3D Crystal Lacquer to the berries and a twine bow.


Our sponsor for this challenge is:
