Christmas Holly

Very gay they were with snow and sleigh-bells, holly-boughs, and garlands, below, and Christmas sunshine in the winter sky above. All faces shone, all voices had a cheery ring, and everybody stepped briskly on errands of good-will.

Good evening my Crafty Peeps!
Thought I would get in on the Sketch Challenge this week from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.
You can find the sketch I followed HERE.

Since I cut it way too close for cards last year, making sure I started early and I decided that when possible, I would make two cards at a time ... so there are actually two ... the picture is showing the sentiment from the set I used (Which by the way, if anyone happens to know this set and who made it I would be most appreciative if you would leave my that information! Thanks!)





Supplies
Card stock from The Paper Studio
White Glitter paper from Recollections
Red Glitter tape from CTMH
Sentiment Unknown
Die: Holly from Darice
Red Glitter Glue (for the berrie) from Stampin Up!
Ink from Palette

Thanks for stopping by!
(Hugs) Cara
