Merry Christmas

Got my chores done in double quick time today so I've had chance to make a simple card for the Less is More Challenge week 195 where the recipe is to use NEWSPRINT.

I decided to use this big Holly stamp which was the first stamp I ever bought and I have to admit it's very useful for making Christmas posters etc.  This time I've used Emerald Archival and stamped on my card to get the flourishes and then a couple of times on newspaper.  I've cut these out (can you see the deliberate mistake?) and glued these on the card, added some Stickles for the berries and stamped Tim Holtz's Merry Christmas in Vermillion Archival.

I'm thinking it would make a simple Christmas card with the Holly stamped on some papers with a small design too.  Thanks for popping by and many thanks for your comments.
