Holly Topiary

On the Colour Crazy Challenge Design Team, I have been joining the other teams in the weekly posting, mostly because I just love the images the sponsors are providing.  

But today is 'my' team's turn and Pattie G's Designs is our sponsor.  I selected the Holiday Topiary.  I think the Holly and Berries are just perfect for the Christmas Season!

I sized the digital image to just over 3" tall.  After printing on 110# Neenah Cardstock, I used my Copic markers for completing the design for this card.  

I used Gina Marie Designs Oval Lace die for the decorative edge.  This is my favorite oval shaped die ever.  It just speaks "Elegant!"

I love how the swirl patterned background matting picks up on the shades used in the pot, perfectly.  The two layers are mounted on a Kraft A2 sized card base to complete this card design. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards. 

I will be entering this card in the following challenges: 

Crafty Gals ~ Challenge 248 ~ Tis the Season 

Shopping Our Stash ~ Challenge 485 ~ Holly & Ivy

Dream Valley ~ Challenge 284  Christmas  

Crafty Calendar ~ December
