Holly Jolly Santa card

Last year I bought some Christmas stamps from Stubby Stampers (like I needed more Christmas stamps) and I really didn't have time to use them as much as I would have liked to.  This little stamp (2 1/2" x 2 1/2") tends to draw my attention.  I stamped the image with TH distressed Vintage Photo ink then lightly colored the image. The edges are aged with the same ink. It is mounted on a metallic gold, which doesn't scan well, then onto an embossed white and finally the holly print. The bottom holly is part of a really old stamp of 3 candles.  It was stamped onto a very dark green print, then trimmed out.  Red pearls make the berries. (I ended up painting the pearls with a red Sharpie)  I added a hand made green swirl and the sentiment is on the ribbon at the bottom.  I added a chip board ornament at the top. 

Thanks for stopping by and as always your comments are a welcome inspiration.
