The Holly And The Ivy

Hi all,
A new challenge starts today, at Winter Wonderland 
This challenge is open for 4 weeks, so plenty of time
to get your entries in.
 
The theme is,
Christmas Carols/Songs
(using the title of a Carol/Song for the theme).
 
I chose to do the Carol, The Holly and The Ivy.
 
A simple CAS card, just using 3 dies and one embossing folder.
 
The embossing folder was a freebie last year, as was the sentiment die.
The Ivy Die is a Joanna Sheen Signature Die
and the Holly Die is from Sue Wilson.
 
The berries are tiny pearls and just a scrap of ribbon for the bow.
The sentiment I cut twice.
One in dark green card and one in gold Mirror Card.
I glued them together, slightly offsetting the green.
 

Our Sponsors for this challenge are as follows:

The prize from Little Claire
 


The prize from Marianne Designs



The prize for Bunny Zoe Crafts:



A £10 Gift Voucher from Crafters Companion
