Clearly Besotted Christmas Card for Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

Hello everyone, and welcome to another challenge over at Holly Jolly Christmas. This time Meighan is hosting and she has given us a colour challenge

Challenge - Choose from one of these colour combo's
(a) Red, Green, White
(b) Blue, White, Silver
(c) Red, Gold, Cream
(d) Blue, Brown, Cream
(e) Monochromatic
(f) Pink, Green, Kraft, White.

I chose to use the last colour scheme, Pink, Green, Kraft, and White, and came up with this card using the new Clearly Besotted 'Joy to the World ' stamp set.

 I stamped the base wreath in green on a kraft panel and then over-stamped with the berry wreath in Versamark ink and added white embossing powder. Next I die cut and stamped the bow before adding glitter with a Wink of Stella brush pen, and attached it to the panel with foam tape. 

The sentiment came from the CB 'Most Wonderful' set and I stamped and embossed it in white before adding a little pink heart. At this point it looked as though it needed something else so I added the 'joy' sentiment to the centre of the wreath and added a mat of white card to the panel before mounting it to the base card with foam tape to add a little dimension.

Thanks for stopping by and why not join us over at Holly Jolly Christmas this time.
