I'm calling this my "marathon" card because it took me a full year to finish it! I had started it last January, got frustrated with it, and left it until a couple months ago. Originally, on the left side of the card, I had a little sprig of berries that I ripped off had fallen off a Christmas garland. But they were just too big and overwhelmed my little skater couple. And apparently they overwhelmed me as well since that was the point I took a break.
Once I started up my Christmas cards in October/November I found my Basic Grey Wassail chipboard pieces and was delighted when the holly was the perfect size. And even more delighted when I found some Martha Stewart "Snow Glitter" on ebay for a steal!
In you're wondering, I couldn't decide which background I liked better in the photos, so I posted both of them. LOL.
Thanks for visiting!
