Holly Berries


I've been meaning to do a card for the 


DIES OR PUNCHES

I finally took the time to get another play with my 
Penny Black Holly Berries Die.

I die cut the holly from watercolor paper
and painted it with my Koi watercolors.

It fit perfectly atop a piece embossed with Christmas sentiments
after I shaped the leaves with a stylus.

The berries have been coated with Crystal Effects.

I'm also entering in



It's their 3rd anniversary.

Happy Anniversary!

and


HOLIDAY

Enjoy!
