Christmas with Ellen Hutson & Penny Black

I'm a little behind on Christmas cards & I wanted to make another card for the EH Mix It Up challenge. As soon as I saw Merry Monday wanted berries, I had this idea.  The PB holly berries die cut was watercolored with Distress Stain bundled sage & Distress Paint mowed lawn.  Red Stickles color the berries & the die cut bow is Pretty Pink Posh. The sentiment die cuts are EH Merry and Bright covered with Glossy Accents for a nice shine.  PB Music Background was inked with Distress Ink Antique Linen, spritzed with water & lightly stamped on the card front.  An ivory pearl seemed like the only needed embellishment.  I'm also entering ATSM & DRU & Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge (Die Cut, Sentiment, Green).  Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
