Christmas Leaves

A one layer card with leaves is required at Less Is More this week, so as I am way behind with making Christmas cards I thought I would use"Christmas leaves" on my card. I stamped the image with Versafine  Olympian Green onto a white folded card and added a little shading around it with Brilliance galaxy gold.I coloured over the berries in the centre with a Marvy pen and then used an Inkssential white pen to highlight them.I also added a very little Stickles glitter to the outer foliage, and then stamped the greeting in the bottom corner.Both the stamps are Chocolate Baroque. I have included a close up of the image to show the glitter.It is rather a nice one for Christmas called Holly, and although it is basically green it has specks of red and gold in it too.
   Thank you for taking a look, I love reading all your comments. I think I have gathered a new follower since last week too, so welcome along and I hope you continue to enjoy what you see.
