Wk4 jingle belles card challenge

The challenge at Jingle Belles this week is Pretty in Pink....and green.

Here's my attempt at this one:

I have to say, that I actually like this one! The colors look better IRL - someday I'll figure out the lighting in this room so I can better pictures.

Here's the details of what I did: I started with a 5x5 card made from Core'dinations cardstock. I inked the edges with the same color green ink. I topped the card base with a 4.5 square of a scrap of pink patterned cardstock - I think it is Basic Grey - edges inked with pink ink. Then I had fun! I cut the Holly Jolly from the Rockin Around the Christmas Tree collection at SVGCUTS.com. (I omitted the arrow layer). In Inkscape, I broke apart an svgcuts.com freebie to create the large holly leaves and berries. I added a slit to the center of the leaf to nestle the word Christmas (stamped on a scrap of the same pink patterned cardstock with green ink) into. I embossed the leaves with a cuttlebug embossing folder. Inked them with green ink, sprinkled with clear EP and heat embossed them. I used versamark ink and clear EP on the holly berries (the shine causes them to look almost red in the picture but they are the same dark pink cardstock used to make the Holly Jolly embellishment). The finishing touch was adding the light green Basic Grey opaline pearls to the corners.

Thanks for stopping by to visit! Have a great weekend!
