A Christmas Card

I am so far behind with my cards this year and think i may end up buying some but today I made a card with a new stamp I bought recently. called Snowy Postcard by Stampendous.
I stamped in Versafine onto white card then used Antique Linen distress ink to make it look a bit aged like an old postcard would do. I used my Graph'it pens to colour the little bit of holly and berries and then used a die to cut it out. The die is one from a set by Sue Wilson, it's from her French collection and is called Provence. I used another from the same set to do the back layer which I cut in half so it looks like a full piece behind the main image.  The other stamp is one from Polkadoodles, again stamped in verafine and coloured with the same pens, the white berries look very white but they are now almost translucent as the glue has fully dried.  I coloured some white ribbon with the same red pen and tied a bow, I also used the pen on the gems so everything ties in well together.

I'm entering this into the following challenges

1. Delicious Doodles - Traditional Christmas
2. Simply Create Too - Snow, Snow, Snow
3. Aud Sentiments - Use a sentiment for a December holiday.
