All Natural, guest designer week two

Week two of my guest designer spot with Flourishes is All Natural and the color scheme picture is below. I used the totally gorgeous Dove and Holly set which has been one of my all time favorite sets for Christmas.  The card is 6x6 square and I used some music paper from my stash for the background, cut a 4 inch square for the image and antiqued it with distressed ink. I colored in the holly and berries with copic makers and added red stickles for the berries.  I sponged some distress ink on the entire card and image for the antique look. The beautiful corners are  holly corners from Cheery Lynn.  I added some red stickles to highlight the berries. 
Be sure to hop over to Flourishes and check out the fabulous creations from the Design Team.
