Simple Framed Image





Hello! I am happy to be playing along in a few challenges today. 

I used my, Serendipity Stamps  Holly With Frame (love this stamp),
fussy cut it out, then added Glossy Accents on the berries.
The sentiment is from Hobby Lobby ; Stampabilities.


The top layers of paper are watercolor paper, 
and fun foam under the holly square. 


 I used my Zig pens for this card, on the leaves I used two shades of green and red over red for the berries. This is heat embossed then colored. If you want to avoid smudges ( like me) make sure you blot your work, some of the color remains on the embossed image.
God Bless!
