Vintage holly

This card is for the sketch challenge on Just us girls week 10:

This week's Copic colour challenge 43 calls for us to use BV23 greyish lavender, R59 cardinal and YG63 pea green. I lighted coloured the greyish lavender over light grey card - it doesn't really show too much. The red and green used for the holly are the nearest other colours I have. The stamped image is Personal impressions.

This card has everything called for in Peachy Keen 17 recipe:
  • polka dot(s)
  • a border
  • stripe(s)
  • stamped image(s)
As copics are alcohol ink pens, this is good for Alphabet 'I is for ink'.

The challenge this week on Paper Maniac Inspiration is 'bling' with the option of using pearls - there are 6 on this card. And the colours are right for Cupcake Inspiration 36.

The script and stamp/postmark on the stamped image gives a vintage feel to the card, which is good for this week's Theme Thursday.
