Holly Berries

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsor for this week is Little Blue Button Stamps. 

Here's what I've created for your inspiration:
I had my card all ready to go, uploaded to the team site and was creating my blog post when I realized the card I made did NOT use a Little Blue Button Stamps image.  Arghhh . . . I thought it was but when I went looking in my files for the name, I discovered that it belonged to another company.  So, I had to do a quick creation.  Yeay for having these fabulous scrap backgrounds already created.  And luckily, I already had this beautiful image printed out.  I added a vellum die cut circle behind the image to soften the background a bit.  The heart border was in my bits and pieces stash, so this card made almost entirely of scraps!  Love it!

Beautiful card. I love that is entirely made of scraps, because it's more difficult to create a great design like yours.

I really like your use of the vellum circle behind the focal image. It's a great idea. Thanks for joining us at The Merry Christmas challenge.
