One Last Christmas card...

....I hope!!! I've got to admit, I am really getting sick of stamping Christmas cards. So hopefully this is the last one to make. Don't get me wrong, this card is for a very special person, Jenny!! I was asked by my "team" to make her a Christmas card (which is always an honor to be asked to make a card for someone)! She is such a nice person and she is crafty and makes cards and scrapbooks. So I wanted to make something really nice.
I started out using some of the Anna Griffin holly paper I had used on THIS card. But then I wanted to use this little holly stamp from Papertrey Ink's Borders & Corners {Oval} set and it got too busy. So, I decided to use this red Basic Grey paper from the Blush collection. I love this red paper and by using this piece, I only have about 1/3 of the 12x12 sheet left. I will be so sad when it is all gone. I'm not sure if you can even buy it anymore!!
I know I matted it with black and it looks kinda dark but, I really like it!! I stamped the little holly leaves with Wild Wasabi ink and then glued on these red beeds using Crystal Effects (SU). The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Believe set... definately the sentiment I used the most this year!!
I hope Jenny likes it!!
Thanks for visiting.
