I wasn't going to enter Merry Monday's challenge this week until I remembered I had the Prize Stag die - perfect!  Then yesterday I received my prize from Memory Box from their last challenge - also perfect.

Die cut the stag and gilded it with HA gold glitter (no longer available from HA).  Also die cut the stitched holly leaves.  Stamped the sentiment in gold glitter first on the PTI gold foil striped paper. Then arranged the stag and leaves, added some red sequins for holly berries and done.

Am also entering this in Memory Box's challenge to use glitter and Happy Little Stampers to use gilding.

Thanks for visiting today and your comments which make my day!  Betty

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
