Merry Christmas

This card is for Sean’s challenge at StampTV, I’m dreaming of a CAS Christmas, STV13MODDYCHRISTMAS3

This challenge just clicked for me and I think for the first time in my card making history, I really enjoyed CAS and I think the card is actually pretty, imagine that.  For this card I used the gorgeous stem from Theresa Momber’s Elegant Florals stamp set.  I stamped it using Memento Olive Grove, but it didn’t stamp as cleanly as I had hoped so got out the trusty Copic markers and using YG03 Yellow Green colored over the leaves and also the berries using R59 Cardinal.  I had pretty red Swarovski crystals and glued them right over the berries for a fun sparkle.  The sentiment is from Nina Brackett’s Fanciful Tags set.  I think after all the fussy Christmas cards I made, it was refreshing to do something that is pretty but with a clean feel.  Thank you Sean!
