Christmas Holly

This is a card I have made using Anita's Victoriana die cut 3d range. The papers are from Papermania's Christmas Carol linen paper range. The brushed gold card base is also from Papermania. Fortunately the SU brushed gold c/s is that same cardstock so I was able to layer the nestie label I used with it, which has been popped up on foam squares.

I've been wanting to use some of my new ribbon that I bought in Townsville and this was my chance. I think the wide ribbon is something that grows on you. I absolutely love it now and can't wait to use more of it. Love the big bows the organza ribbon makes. Beate uses big bows on a lot of her work and while I know I'm not in Beate's league, I had to try the look out. The flower embellishment is made up of a Hero Arts flower, then a red Prima one and the cream rose in the middle is one from some more of the stash I bought in Townsville. Brushed gold branches from my MS punch completed my flower. Then to finish off, I used Annabelle pearl sprinkles in the three corners.

I know there isn't any stamping on this card but I have many, many 3d sheets, so I thought I would try to make cards with them using sketches, layers, ribbons, flowers etc to create interest. Thanks for looking and hope you like my card.
