Apologies to Deanne and my teamies at CCAYR for my blog post being so late. You know how life can be sometimes! Anyway, no time for chatter, here is my card for the mid-month challenge of "Leaves."
And what better leaves to use for a Christmas card than holly leaves? I have 2 holly embossing folders, and this one is from the Paper Studio. I decided to make this an easy card, and just colored over the embossed leaves and berries with Prismacolor pencils. I left my panel in the folder while I colored, so as not to flatten the design. I distressed the edges with my favorite Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, and popped it up on fun foam. The sentiment comes from the Lawn Fawn "Deck the Halls" stamp set.
