Hello all, and a big welcome to my New Followers! This is a Christmas Card with the Simply Gorjuss Stamp 'Holly' and she is part of my CANDY!!! So if you haven't entered already, why not have a go and you could win her and lots of other Christmas Goodies!
This was a kind of experiment with the dark background to Holly and it's not quite right!!! I did it with Prismacolour Pencils but maybe next time I will try with dark Distress Ink to get a more subtle effect!! I also put Glossy Accents on the Holly and not sure if I like that either!!! LOL. My daughter didn't like the card but my mum loved it !!! I was going for a kind of dark 'fairytale' style card, heaven knows why! must be my age !!!! LOL The gorgeous paper is Cosmo Cricket 'Mitten Weather'. Poinsettia and Holly are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Pearls from Bunny Zoe's. Gold wire from stash.

I bought the Christmas Digi Inserts Set from Bearly Mine Designs. I saw them on Laney's Blog, so thank you Laney for the link. They are gorgeous! Still experimenting with paper to print them out on etc. but they are great if you are in a rush and they look so yummy. I have put some Clip Art of Candy Canes in the left hand circle and some text in the right hand circle.
I am so tired last few days. Went to dentist on Wednesday and picked up a cold !!! Makes me laugh they have all these signs saying 'don't come in if you have a cold!' and 'please use the disinfectant hand wash before entering!!' and I always go in healthy and come out with a cold !!! LOL I suppose there are so many people in Waiting Room and it is warm and stuffy! and cold season has started!! Don't feel with it so am bound to do this post wrong !!!
Anyway, back to my card:-
