Papertrey's October challenge has this inspiration photo for us. Well, it's Christmas, obviously ;)
So I went with the red and green colours, Casing Dawn's beautiful card for my design. (See below)
And here's what I ended up with. I used Distress Inks, spritzed with water, for a watercoloured look. I'm not-so-patiently waiting for my Spruce & Sprigs stamp set to arrive, but tried for a similar look using Holly and Mistletoe stamps and dies. The greeting, from O Holy Night, is heat embossed in gold.
I love a touch of gold on a Christmas card! Here's a close-up of the flower centers. I used a gold pen to make the dots, as well as for the "dashes" on the holly leaves.
