I originally was going to use a critter image with a Christmas parcel but I remembered that the challenge was cold outside so decided to go with the Holly Flourish die I brought for the challenge.

I went for a white card because in my head I was thinking my holly is either covered in snow or frost. I embossed the back of each holly leaf with a large ball embossing tool. I added some cut down 3d foam square on the back of the leaves I wanted to be raised.

Now I have thing about a random stalk left on view so I got out my favourite Simon says Stamp Poinsettia Parade to make some white poinsettias.

The sentiment is one I've been using lots at the moment from Simon says Stamp Yuletide Holiday stamps. I've been practising making dots with the Nuvo Crystal Red Berry drops which is why I felt confident to use them for my berries.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

This holly flourish is beautiful Debby and I have never seen a holly sprig that I like better, I just wish it was a bit cheaper to buy..maybe this Friday will be a good time. I love the red and white which is so elegant and your Nuvo drop berries are perfect, also your sentiment goes beautifully. x
