This entry for Beccy's Place Sixth Annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge inspired by the letter "H" is Holly. The image and sentiments on the card are from a Beccy's Place digi set named "Blessings Of The Season." This is one of my favorite Christmas sets as the image is so elegant and the set has so many wonderful Christmas sentiments. I colored the holly branches and vase with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and white gel pen. I provided a close-up photo to show the details. Used patterned background paper that looks like vintage lace to create a "lace tablecloth" beneath the vase and also as a base for the inside sentiment. Added a bit of bling with silver photo corners and two silver glitter enamel dots.

For my final entry in the Simon Says Monday Challenge named Make Your Own Background I pulled out one of my favorite retired Stampin' Up wood mount sets. Cards made with this set, named "Decorative Grapes," don't require any coloring so they go together pretty quickly. I especially like stamping purple or burgundy grapes onto kraft cardstock. I created the background by stamping several of the grape clusters on an A2 card. Stamped another cluster onto a small square of white cardstock, stamping off of the edge. Adhered this to two scraps of embossed cardstock and vellum and added a lovely burgundy bow. Finished the card with a scripture verse printed on vellum.

Word Art Wed Challenge- # Anything Goes (wordartwednesday.blogspot.com)
I love this time of the year because I love everything about Thanksgiving and Christmas. The food, the decorations, the reason we celebrate both holidays… and making cards to send to friends and family. I love this sweet digi from Bugaboo [named "Autumn Squirrel"] and the sentiment is a freebie from TLC (createwithtlc.blogspot.com)
