Christmas Card Club - Anything Goes

 It's my turn to choose the theme for our Christmas Card Club Challenge today and I've gone with a really simple one ie Anything Goes.  It leaves the doors wide open for everyone to choose whatever. 

For my card I've used the fabulous Stampin' Up! Christmas Gleaming stamp set and famous dies 'scissors' tee hee for the fussy cutting of the holly.  I stamped the holly in memento black ink and used my Stampin' Up! alcohol blends markers to colour it.  Colours included Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Soft Sea Foam, Cherry Cobbler and Ivory.  I'm really pleased with how the holly and berries turned out.  The gorgeous copper foil layer is embossed with a folder called Hammered Metal and the background paper is from the very, very popular Brightly Gleaming Specialty papers.   This particular paper is Vanilla and Pretty Peacock and is just gorgeous. 
Extra bling comes in the form of Wink of Stella on the leaves and berries where they catch the light and a simple linen thread bow.  My inspiration for the card came from the Stampin' Up! winter catalogue and I've flipped the design and layers a little.  When your mojo is low the catalogues are always a great source of inspiration.
