wishing you...

Hello friends!!  Popping in with a quick little card that I made for a few challenges.  This is another one layer card so I will be posting it to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge and Less is More (one layer week - put a stem on it).  I used the Essentials by Ellen Merry & Bright stamp set along with a Penny Black woodmounted stamp so I will be adding this to the Essentials by Ellen February Mix It Up challenge (just squeaking this one in!) and finally I will be posting this to Merry Monday Christmas challenge to have berries on your card.  My holly stem has tiny little berries on it.  Card is pretty straight forward.  Stamped the holly image using Close to My Heart New England Ivy ink and then added the little berries using Stampin Up! Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details.  The sentiment (from Merry & Bright) was stamped in black and then I added the little bow (also from Merry & Bright) in red ink.   Wow... I have now made two one layer cards in the last week!  I haven't done that in ages, lol!!

That card is great! The shape of the spray, the font which goes so well, it's freshness, I would be very pleased to receive a card like this.
