Vintage Merry Christmas

I've had a few crafty weeks with card classes and weekend retreats. I was super busy and have lots to share with you. This is one I pulled together from a card kit and added my own little touch.

Sketch Inspiration ~ Midnight Madness Sketch #72

Color Inspiration ~ Color Throwdown #118

I was inspired by the brown swirls in heading and the shape of leaves which are mimicked in the holly leaves.
My Creation

Image Detail
I tried to create my own 3D holly accents with Tear Drops.


I found a handful of tidbits I'd created (ahem, I believe 2 years ago) from a PaperTrey Ink set. They are turning out to make perfect little sentiments.
