.....Boughs of Holly

I love this stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog.

I stamped it on Shimmery White with StazOn and colored with markers and a blender pen.

Then I stepped it up a bit with some sponging.

I used an oval mask from cutting an oval with the Big Shot and sponged around the edges.  I sponged the edges of the base card a bit lighter.

The Technique Lover's Challenge on SCS today is to use sponging.  I'm going over there to leave this off.

Card Recipe

It's really cold here.  Good weather for stamping but I really need to get my Christmas cards out!

Both versions are pretty, but I like the CASness of card #1....I seem to be so drawn to ultra-CASness lately!
