Inkurable Stampers Holly Challenge

Hello again, I said I would be back  : )
Here is my project for this month's theme over at Inkurable Stampers...


I started with a kraft coloured card blank, dry-painted it with silver acrylic paint, and stamped Darkroom Doors Flourish onto it using Adirondack Lights ink (juniper) also applying it directly to the edges.    I then glued some red mesh ribbon to the front and the wreath image (containing the holly, from Darkroom Door Christmas Montage sheet) using foam tape.     The tag (made by stamping the script image from a DD set of stamps) was in my scraps box already.     I glued the tiny ric-rac to the edge of the card, and added some DM to the wreath.
I have a few more projects that I want to share but haven't taken photos of them yet...they include a weeping angel (for the Whovians out there!) and a moose : )    Thanks for visiting me, I hope you're making time to be creative, if I can do it, so can you...

Gorgeous Vicky, the montage sheets are so effective when used this way. I love the texture of the red layer.

Beautiful card! You kept it "simple" colourwise and that made the structure and texture pop out in a very nice way!
