Simple Vintage Christmas

I couldn't resist coming back for a couple more challenges today. This time I kept it pretty clean and simple with my card for the SCS sketch challenge and the Color Throwdown. I was in a Christmasy sort of mood even before I saw the colors, but that sealed the deal - here's what I came up with.

The holly image comes from the level 2 hostess set in the mini - Peaceful Season. I just love this set for vintage holiday cards. I stamped the holly several times on the Crumb Cake circle with Soft Suede, then colored the berries with a Cherry Cobbler marker. I added a couple more circles and sponged all the edges with Soft Suede. The designer paper comes from the Deck the Halls pack - also in the mini - as is the Cherry Cobbler seam binding. I finished off with a Crumb Cake base, three Cherry Cobbler brads and a sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments - I colored just the Merry Christmas with a Soft Suede marker.

Gotta dash... but I hope you feel the holiday spirit after reading about this card - I sure do after making it!
