Holly Jolly Peek!!

I am THRILLED to be posting this card today...why you ask? Well, because it is my first OFFICIAL peek as a Verve Guest Diva!!! Yayyy me!!! If you missed the announcement, you can find it here!! Seriously, when Julee asked, I was so excited I think I bounced off the walls for an hour...I'm sure my Dad thought I had lost my mind!!LOL!!

Today we are peeking two new sets, Holly Jolly and Christmas in the Air. For my peek, I chose to use my new FAVORITE holiday set, Holly Jolly. I am in LOVE with all the different ornaments in this set and I LOVE that you can mix them up!! For my card, I stamped the ornament on an MFT perfect panel and then colored it with my Copics. I then stamped the holly leaf separately, colored, and then cut it out. My DP is from SU, but it is retired. I paired it with Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, and Old Olive. I used some of the retired Ribbon Originals from SU, and some SU brads. My spiral clip is of course from Joanne's. I also used one of this month's Verve Release Challenge Sketches. This is sketch C, and I am LOVING all the others as well!! There are five in all and you have until Friday night at 6pm EST to get them turned in to be eligible to win the entire release!!
