Holiday Cheer!

Happy Saturday!  I have a card to share.  I am playing along with Papertrey Ink's Create Along With Us September Challenge.

I chose to case Dawn's card.

I just love the colors and the two-toned holly background on Dawn's card.  Since I do not have my new PTI goodies yet, I used what I had.  I thought the leafy cluster in Daydreamer stamp set would work.  This set also has a trio of circles that I used for the holly berries.  I stamped the leafy image with new leaf ink and rocked and rolled hawaiian shores on the edges.  

Next, I die cut tag #4 in hawaiian shores card stock and used Big and Bold Christmas stamp set for the sentiments.  I used Happy Hydrangea stamp set and die for the bow die cut in pure poppy and stamped with pure poppy ink.  To give my red holly berries some highlights, I used some white acrylic paint and the end of my stylus to create the dotted highlights.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
