Christmas Berries Card

I am loving this berries branch from Penny Black Stamps!  I have used it for fall cards, and also used it for some of my Christmas cards this year.  I went with non-traditional colors of wine and copper.....
The stamp is Penny Black's slapstick cling berry merry christmas 40-346.  The verse is also Penny Black, from their clear set believe 30-310.

I used my Misti and Tombow markers to watercolor the berry branch onto watercolor paper, then embossed the verse with copper embossing powder.  I die cut the image panel with My Favorite Things stitched rectangle die.

Around the edges of the panel, I used an ink applicator tool to rub on some copper Colorbox metallic ink, lightly.  Some white acrylic paint spattered on finished the panel.  I layered it with craft foam onto a copper paper panel, then onto a plum A2 card.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

Allsorts Challenge Blog - Anything Christmas

City Crafter Challenge Blog - Garden bliss 

simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything goes

Addicted To Stamps - Make your mark 

Time Out Challenges  Christmas with optional twist of shimmer/glitter - I used shimmer paper behind the panel.

Thanks so much for visiting today.  Be sure to take time to enjoy the holiday preparations, and relax.
