Festive Foliage


The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #152 has just gone live and this is my DT card.  It was prescheduled before I left and by the time it goes live I'll be getting ready for my return flight from Australia.

I cut the base of these holly leaves (Sizzix Seasonal Sketch) from plain green card stock and the detail from green mirror card and I did the same for this sentiment (LDRS) and the holly berry.   I was going to place the holly leaf in the top left corner but I needed to hide a boo boo - a little of the mirror finish peeled off the "W" in the sentiment.  So I placed the holly leaf such that the offset detail just covered the this boo boo - a pretty good save if I do say so myself!  As an after thought, I added another offset leaf to the bottom right corner as well.

I'd like to enter the following challenges

NBUS Challenge #56  - Leaves and Sentiment were both NBUS;
Merry Little Christmas Challenge #53 - Anything Christmas Goes;
12 Months of Christmas Challenge #106 - Anything Christmas Goes;
