Holly Wheel

Friday again...already??????? My life is flying past me. I am once again doing the QFTD challenge on Splitcoaststamper-#85. The Queen for the Day is Vicky Gould. I chose this card to case, mostly keeping her sketch.  Vicky inspired me to get out my Stampin'Up! Soft Holly wheel. I really don't think I've ever used it. I used a couple punches and added a sentiment...done!

Recipe:
Stamps: Stampin'Up! Holiday Happiness set (sentiment)
Paper: PTI white and vintage cream cardstock, SU cherry cobbler cs
Ink: Stampin'Up! Always Artichoke
Accessories: Stampin'Up! Soft Holly wheel, Martha Stewart Polar Stamp and Punch (snowflakes), Martha Stewart Frosty Village edge punch, Cuttlebug lg snowflakes embossing folder, clear gemstones

Love the simple lines on here and the punched border with the holly border. Thanks for the suggestions for my star card. I'll give that a try.

This card reminded me that I have 2 wheels I never use! I need to revisit them again soon! I just love that little border punch you used with the red card stock! It's a little village! CUTE!

Benzi this is awesome. It reminds me of a pretty Scandinavian Sweater with its crisp lines and imagery. Love that little village-it is awesome.
Bear Hugs,
