Holly and ivy

Hello everyone

Firstly apologies for my absence over the last two weeks. My mum went into hospital two weeks ago for a routine operation which has proved less routine than we first hope. So my time has been spent with my family getting my mum better. We had some good news today so fingers crossed everything will be back to normal in time for Christmas.
Now onto crafting - as it is Friday there is a new challenge at Winter Wonderland. This week the snowflake team would like to see your Christmas projects featuring holly and/or ivy. Here is my card for the challenge -
The stamp is from Penny Black called Fairy Holly which I have coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and Sparkle pens -
