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.
