Double D Challenge


This is the photo  inspiration for this challenge.  All of the traditional Christmas images that we associate with the holiday.  Therefore, traditional colors are the main theme of this challenge. 

Here is the card I did.
Card base is Gina K Designs White heavy card stock, then a layer of Cherry Red.  I stamped the holly from Power Poppy, Holly Golightly stamp set, all around the edge, black Memento ink.  They are colors with copic markers.  The berries have red sparkly stickles on them. 
The sentiment is from Gina K, Holly Jolly stamp, as well as the black gingham ribbon.   I got a traditional Christmas card.  
 I will also enter this card in this challenge: 

Thanks so much for stopping by, your comments brighten my day.
