HSS #173 Be Merry

Finishing up the day with one more challenge.  This time its a sketch over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Well this sketch was tricky for me, only because everything I had thought of using someone else had used it and I didn't want to feel like I was a copy cat!  I decided to use the four shapes on my card as holly leaf clusters!  I added some candy stripes to the large vanilla mat for some texture and topped it off with a bow!

Card Supplies:
cardstock -   cherry cobber, very vanilla, garden green and soft suede
stamp sets -  Christmas Messages, Be Merry
misc. -          chalk talk framelits, cherry cobber, seam binding ribbon, owl punch for holly berries   candy strips folder and holly came from my cricut
