Less Is More Colour Challenge

It's time for another colour challenge over at the Less Is More blog.  This time it's a very festive Red and Green that's been chosen.  All the details for the challenge can be found HERE
I decided to keep the festive card making going whilst participating in the challenge and here is what I created:

I stamped the sentiment from Papermania in crushed olive distress ink then added the large and medium holly stamps by Clarity Stamps, also stamped with the crushed olive.
I then used my distress markers mixed with water to paint the holly leaves, I used peeled paint and crushed olive to paint with.
I added red stickles for the berries to give it a bit of Christmassy sparkle, used a gold pen to line the edges and then mounted it onto a kraft card blank.
I hope everyone is having a nice weekend!
