Hello!  I hope you’re having a great weekend so far.

This week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown we are celebrating the “holly-days” with a holly themed challenge!  The design team has made some great cards with various holly images. You can go to the 52{C}CT site to see what they’ve created, and if you love what you see, feel welcome to comment on their work – I know they’d really appreciate it!

For my card, I used designer paper with a holly pattern as well as a stamped holly image.  This designer paper is old stuff, LOL.  I bought it back in the early 2000s when I was a Longaberger consultant because the paper matches one of the fabrics that the company used for some of their basket liners.  The colors in the designer paper helped me choose some of my retired Stampin’ Up cardstock colors for the rest of the card.  I used a hole punch to cut out the berries in the stamped image so that the cranberry colored paper would show through and give the berries a more realistic color.   The layout for this card is OWH Stars & Stamps sketch #185.

All right – now it’s your turn to get creating!  We’d love it if you share your holly-riffic cards on our challenge blog.  You can link your card until 1:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday, August 23.  Thanks for stopping by today!
