ATSM #243 A Merry Christmas Card and ENJOY Card

Hallo my Blogland friend, we meet again at Wednesday and it means a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More (ATSM) this week we have theme: HOLIDAY

I made my card this time using Hero Arts Clear Stamp set. I stamped the holly leaves and then after all I splatter green colors on the main panel. The embossed green paper I have got as a goodies from my lovely friend Mimi, many thanks sweety..I really love the tiny holly leaves there.

Here you can see closer the main panel. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

  9. Such lovely cards, Monika! Love fantastic green on the Christmas card, wonderful back for the berries. The cheerful bathtub card is absolutely sweet :)

  10. My kind of Christmas card, very traditional in colors and image, and the splatter is a decorative, modern touch. A great technique to limit the whiteness. I really like how this came together.
    Such a great embossed pattern, and the colors bring out the pattern and dimension of it too. When seeing images like this I miss having a bath tub. It looks so relaxing. Beautiful coloring of this detailed image.
