Have A Holly Jolly Christmas

Hi Folks! I'm back, to tell you about a new challenge at Shelly's Images! Our challenge, this time, is to use the sketch we provided, to create something fabulous.

Remember, our challenges are now on the first and third Thursdays of the month, so that gives you about two weeks to play along!  Plenty of time, now, so there's no excuse not to link up with us for your chance to win!

I went with a Christmas card, again.  I mean, after all, who couldn't use to get ahead on thier Christmas cards, right?!   For my layout, I've used the sketch for our current challenge at Shelly's Images. I used a mix of red, green and white Christmas papers from my stash. My card uses the image, Holly, from Shelly's Images, colored with Promarkers. The image is punched with a punch by EK Success, then I fussy cut around it with red cardstock, to create a frame.  I used pearl flourishes, from my stash, to embellish.  My sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.  I used a border punch to create the gorgeous scallops.

I took my inspiration from this photo, at Just Inspirational Challenges:
