Merry Monday Christmas Challenge - Holly

Holly was the focus for this week's Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.  I also used some "new" old items . . . items purchased a while ago, but never used.  It started with the holly embossing folder from Sizzix to emboss my main panel of my card.  Never before used . . . broken in!  Once embossed, I pulled out some shimmer paint from Tsukineko and sponged it onto the embossed panel.  It really added a nice shimmer. 

I added a ribbon border and colored the embossed holly at the bottom of the card using my Tim Holtz markers.  The heart was cut from some metal sheets I purchased a few months back.  And finally, a sentiment from a new stamp set.

Always great to use new items, and always fun to participate in a challenge.
