A New Toy!

Good morning everyone...I have to work today so this will be short and sweet!  I got a new Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix holly leaf die and just had to play with it!! The leaves and berries were stamped with Rubbernecker's Screen Background #452 and sponged with Handsome Hunter and Ruby Red. I used some Walnut Crystals on the branch but after I mixed up the crystals and water, I promptly spilled the stain all over my work surface and flooded the branch....oy vey!!! I kinda ran out of steam after that!!! The RN Merry Christmas sentiment #387-10 was stamped with Handsome Hunter and the seam binding, button, and gold cording finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker Screen background and Rubbernecker sentiment
Paper: White, Handsome Hunter, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Basic Grey dp
Ink: Handsome Hunter, Ruby Red
Accessories: Walnut Crystals, TH die, Button, Gold Cording, Seam Binding,

Thanks for dropping by...have a super fab day!!!

It's great, Joan. The font on the MC is really nice. I like how you added to the holly with a background stamp.
