The Holly and the Ivy

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland and this week our theme is 'The Holly and the Ivy'.

I have used an image and papers from Joanna Sheen's Jayne Netley Mayhew Part 2 CD.

I cut the image out with a Spellbinders circle die and then layered it onto a scalloped circle and then another plain circle, the berries have all been given a generous layer of 3D Crystal Lacquer.  The scalloped borders are an X-Cut edge punch and the sentiment is a LOTV stamp on a Spellbinders Ribbon Banner die cut.  The music papers are from the Dovecraft Back to Basics Vintage Christmas collection.

We are sponsored by

who are offering one lucky winner 2 stamps of their choice

This card has a beautiful traditional design. I think it's great that you didn't add any embellishments, allowing the image to be the center of attraction and all those great trimmings and papers to be seen.
