ABC Christmas 'H' for Holly Challenge

We had lots of lovely entries to our Glitz Challenge over the last 2 weeks, thanks to everyone who entered :-)
It was Helen) ">Helen's turn to choose the theme for the next fortnight and she chose

H FOR HOLLY with the optional extra of following a sketch :-)

We are joined by our new Guest Designer, Delphine :-) If you haven't visited her blog you should really go to see it, her work is fabulous :-)

Our sponsor for this challenge is Heidi at Simon Says Stamp, so a fabulous shopping spree on offer !! :-)


For my card I used my lovely Sarah Kay stamp , I do love this one :-) I coloured the image with copics then dabbed it with the tip of the blender pen to try to create a velvet look ! I then added polar white flower soft to the trims for 'fur' :-)
The edges were inked with antique linen distress ink. I used liquid pearls for the holly berries and stickles for sparkle :-)




The papers are My Minds Eye and SU Close to Cocoa card. I used a Martha Stewart holly punch and Hero Arts red gems for berries. The flowers are Tim Holts Prima Poinsettia's



Here is Helen's fabulous sketch :-) The DT have all chosen to use it so pop on over to the ABC Christmas Challenge to see their lovely cards :-)



I am entering this into the Creative Card Crew Challenge ,,, Vintage/Aged

I have a GORGEOUS blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek it is at the top of my blog :-)
