Red Berries for the Christmas Card Club!

Well here we are again another CCC card, two weeks since our last one, can hardly believe it's time for another one.

This time our lovely Valery has chosen the challenge which is Red Berries, always so Christmassy and traditional, so without further ado here is mine;
I've use an Inkylicious  stamp which comes with the words, and my berries are made from red Liquid Pearls.  Background is inked with Momento Inks and Inkylicious Ink Dusters.
Mounted on to black card, the a lovely silvery stripped paper from Silent Night First Editions paper pad.  I didn't think it needed anything else.

I'd like to thank everyone who visited and left a comment on my last post, you are all very kind. The swans are still nesting, Alistair was having a look at them today, I hope they didn't mind the snow showers.  It has been so cold here, at one point I thought I was going to have to look out my fingerless mitts, I've had a scarf and a fleece on  all day...and the heating is on.

The other team members will be along with their fabulous creations so I hope you will have a look at them, their names are on my side bar.

Teallach has found a fly and is racing around trying to catch it, even it's come in out of the cold.

Take care everyone and enjoy the rest of your weekend,
I would like to enter my card into the following challenge:

This is a really lovely CAS card KAte. I totally agree that you don't need to add anything else to it. I love the First Edition paper. Some of the papers in there are so lovely I don't want to use them! We had heavy snow for a good part of yesterday and a really heavy frost overnight but the sun is shining now. Mind you, I don't want togo out in it brrr! Hugs and keep warm! Christine xx

A gorgeous CAS card. Marlene

Sandy said...

Gorgeous background. I do love clean and simple cards. To do one well I think is harder than plopping everything but the kitchen sink on it.
Well done Kate!!

Great work on that sponged ombre background and it shows off these delightfully gleaming holly berries just beautifully. The liquid pearls worked so well to make the berries shine and this is a really pretty image. Well done, Kate! TFS & Hugs

brenda said...

Just saw your comment (thank you) Kate and made me realise I had not seen any posts from you on my dashboard, came to check and I seem to have disappeared from your flower list so just signed up again, know I did it a couple of weeks ago, blame Blogger. Really like the berries design on this card.
