Vintage Holly

Well, I’m getting into a groove of blogging a Christmas card every morning when I have my coffee….and today’s is a vintage themed one. The pretty holly image is from the now closed Stitchy Bear Stamps – one I’ve had for years, and never got around to using. I colored it with my Copics and fussy cut it out. I cut out a piece of a Christmas music sheet, and inked over it lightly with some Distress Ink. For the background, I found some woodgrain and snowflake printed paper in my stash. To add a bit of holiday sparkle, I die cut a sentiment and matted the background with some gold sparkle card stock. For just a bit more sparkle, I took a gold glitter pen and edged the ribbon with a bit of it.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
