Meljen's Challenge #190.

Good morning everyone!!  I have been wrapped up in work trying to get a budget done. This is my first year having to work on the budget.. oh boy!!!  LOL  I think we are pretty close to being finished. I have some images colored and decoupaged.. I need ... let me repeat that LOL NEED!!! to make some cards!! All this work is driving me crazy! LOL!!!  Alright... enough of my complaining ;)  On to today's challenge!

MELJEN's CHALLENGE
CHALLENGE #190 - Holly Berries (use Red and Green)

For this challenge you need to use red and green in your project!!  And here is mine:

The image I used is Jingle Bell which you can find in the Meljens Designs Shop! I colored the image with my Copic markers. I popped the bell. All of the papers are scraps from this year and I distressed the edge of the bottom paper. I used a corner rounder punch on the corners of the inside papers. I added some random embossing powder on the edge, the twine is from my stash from forever ago, the snowflakes and the gems - also from my stash from forever ago LOL. The gems on the inside are blue and the bottom paper on the inside I also distressed.

Copic:
Bell: Y00, Y11, Y15, YR24
Berries: R20, R22, R24, R27, R29
Bow: B12, B14, B16
Holly: G02, G03, G05, G09
