PINK & GREEN

This week's challenge on Merry Monday is to use pink and green as the main colors.  The inspiration for my card was this card by Lin - loved the way she used the twine to make the wreath.  



The background watercoloring was done with my Kuretake Gamsai colors - spattered some of the gold metallic while the card was still wet.  The holly berries were stamped with picked raspberry and added some glossy accents to give them a bit of shine.  The die cuts and stamps are PTI's spruce and sprigs.

Thanks for visiting today and as always love your kind comments.  Betty
