Crazy 4 Challenges C4C109

Today is a good day to stay inside and work on cards, it's so dreary and cold - what happened to our Indian summer ?  I'm busy this week preparing cards for classes, but taking time to enter this card in a challenge that is sponsored by the Outlines Rubber Stamp Company.   You can find the information about the challenge and Design Team samples at Crazy 4 Challenges.

I used Outline's J984 Holly Background for this card.   I stamped and embossed the image with Gold twice on Plum card stock.    I painted the holly leaves with green Mica Colour Interference Paint and used Smooch Ink on the berries.   I also added Glossy Accents to the berries.  I cut out a few additional leaves from the 2nd image and used pop dots to add dimension. The folded card stock is a metallic green which I think compliments the holly leaves.    The sentiment is by Craftsmart.    Gold ribbon and Starform border stickers add the final touches ! 

I hope you can see the sheen that the MicaColour paints add !    

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day !
