Merry Christmas

When I saw these cards  by Marika, I just knew I had to give her technique a try.  She made it look so easy . . .

I tried to play around with the kraft colors, but I didn't like how mine came out.  So I tried this holly branch (from Hero Arts) on a muted green paper (DCWV).  Better - but it could still use some tweaking.   Maybe another day. 

I am putting this onto the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland Challenge where the challenge is traditional Christmas colors.

a2z Scrapbooking Blog - the challenge is Clean and Simple -- this really was simple.  And fun to create.

The bit of pattern paper is from Stampin Up.  I used Inktense pencils to color the leaves and berries.  

As always, thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.
