Merry Monday.....Season's Greetings

Merry Monday Peeps
Today Lesley has another great sketch for us:

I pulled out some retired Stampin Up paper that I love called Deck the Halls.
The holly leaves comes from the "Bells and Boughs" stamp set.
I love this set and will probably never part with it.

The base of the card is Crumb cake and then the DSP is all matted with confetti cream card stock.
The image is also stamped on the same card stock and then colored with my aqua painter and ink pads. I used always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler ink.
I cut out some of the leaves and added them over the base ones with some dimensionals.
The sentiment comes from the Four the Holidays set.

Be sure and hop over to Lesley's Blog to check out what the rest of the Merry Makers did with this fabulous sketch!

Thanks for stopping by today!

This is absolutely gorgeous! Love the image and coloring.
Which combination of nestability dies did you use. Or should I say what size is each layer.
