Pantone Chip Inspired Card

Have to admit, I'd never heard of Pantone Chip photography, but what a fun card challenge for PTI MIM!  I knew right away I wanted to make a Christmas card using Spruce & Sprigs.  
I smooshed a couple scraps with DI pine needles & festive berries to use for die cutting.  I stamped the holly & branch in Pinefeather & the berries in festive berries.  The chip was made by blending a 2x3 inch scrap with DI pine needles.  The sentiment from Wreath for All Seasons was stamped in Brilliance Starlite Black.  I love using the mini MISTI to stamp multiple times when needed, like I did here for the berries & the word Holidays.  I tried several backgrounds, but didn't like them.  Finally decided just to use dry embossed dots & I mounted the chip with foam tape.  Really love how this turned out--hope you do, too!  I'm also entering CAS(E) this Sketch, Christmas Card Challenges,  HLS Christmas Challenge, Time Out & Word Art Wednesday.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
