A Holly Jolly Christmas




It's time for a new Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge. The theme for February is Anything Goes With An Optional Twist Of Holly. 
Challenge winner will receive a $15.00 discount at the Happy Little Stampers Store.

Here is my take:


I brushed various shades of green watercolor onto a piece of watercolor paper. I die cut 8 holly shapes using Paper Smooches Warm Hearts Icons, and stamped them with the holly image from Paper Smooches Warm Hearts stamp set. I added the holly berries using Gloss Red Nuvo Drops, then arranged and popped up the holly die cuts. I added sponging with red ink on the edges, and added twine to the top. The sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers Christmas Joy stamp set.

Playing the HLS Christmas Challenge every month helps you to get a good handle on next year's Christmas cards, plus helps you to remember and use all of those Christmas goodies you added to your stash over time.  Head on over the the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge and see what the Design Team has created for your inspiration, get your Holly Jolly on, link up your creation, and play.

What a crisp and clean design Stephanie. I love the different shades of green on the holly leaves and those nuvo drops look fabulous!

Great garland of holly leaves. I love the multidimensionality of your card. Great design.
I do not know if you know, but it does not work your permalink.

Love the holly garland, such a fab design cascading down the card but that red sponging just finishes the card perfectly :)
I always mean to join in with Christmas challenges for that reason but never do!!
