Bows of Holly Card

Hello everyone, today I am sharing my take on this months Sketch & Dare Challenge!!!

Every month a new sketch will be introduced....
the sketch can be interpreted as a card, layout or altered piece!

You need to use at least one Die~Namites Die in your creation.

Here is this month’s sketch created by Dunja.....

 Dunja's dare is to use Bling...we all love a little bling!!

I used the Elegant Holly Die to create my card...

 I started with the idea of creating a full wreath using the holly leaves from the Elegant Holly die, but once I started I really liked the simpler look of the 'bows of holly' instead...

I started by cutting a circle frame from a piece of green cardstock as my base, you can hand cut or use paper punches for this.

Next I cut the Elegant Holly die multiple times and snipped off the individual holly leaves, which I layered around one side of the frame.  I added a touch of Forest Green Distress Stickles to each of the holly leaves for a little added bling (see got that dare in there already).

I finished the top of the bow using these adorable mini pine-cones and a ribbon bow.  Of course holly wouldn't be the same without some red berries, so I added some red bling.

You have until the last day of the month to post your creation on your blog,
with mention of the Die~Namites Die used and a link back HERE to the Die~Namites Dies blog.
Link your blog post, using Inlinkz, to the Die~Namites Die blog.
A random winner will be chosen from eligible participants for a $25 Gift Certificate to the Die~Namites Dies!

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you play along!!
