For my wonderful Husband

This is the last Christmas card I will be posting this year, it is the one I made for my husband - the most difficult one that I had to make!

I used  a Tim Holtz Christmas Blueprint 4 stamp, stamping it on some Heartfelt Creations patterned paper and also on plain paper. I coloured the plain version with ProMarkers and added 3D Crystal Lacquer to the berries before fussy cutting it.  My sentiment is a Clearly Besotted stamp on a Die-namics Fishtail flag cut from the patterned paper.

I distressed the papers and sentiment with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and added some twine from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
