The Holly And The Ivy

It's that time again already - Challenge #51 at CACB is to be inspired by a Christmas Song - any Christmas song! I couldn't get "the holly and the ivy" out of my head, I don't know why - it isn't a particular favourite but it stubbornly refused to budge! I don't have any ivy stamps or backing papers or dies so it was rather annoying - anyway, I eventually took the hint and decided to draw an ivy corner which is going into the shop as soon as I've posted this. What I've used with it are the pre-coloured holly wreath, one of the Christmas baubles and a bow from the embellishments sheet. (All from Crafty Ann's) The bauble and bow were coloured in photoshop and the ivy corner was coloured with promarkers (satin, forest green and pine). The greeting is a Humphrey's corner stamp that was part of a free set from a recent magazine and I've distressed the main base layer at the edges.

I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
