Holly berries for CHNC challenge 171

This is my second design card for CHNC challenge 171: seeing red ... a little or a lot.  It features a holly image kindly supplied by one of our other sponsors today on CHNC challenge 171QKR Stampede. Background paper is Echo Park /very merry Christmas' - the other papers are offcuts left from previous cards. The background and around the image have been coloured with fired brick distress ink. The image and the paper it's matted on to were torn around perspex ovals. I added red gems as berries to give the card a bit of bling.

This is also for:
