Christmas card

You can tell that September has hit as every day there is something scheduled! I missed last week's challenges but I have a card this week. It is a simple Christmas card. 

I started with a piece of white cardstock and used an embossing folder from Sizzix to make the frames. I coloured them in with Spectrum Noir marker LG5. I stamped the two images, both by Hero Arts, in Memento Tuxedo Black. I used another embossing folder from Sizzix to emboss LOVE and cut it out with the matching die. I stamped the sentiment, by Inkadinkado, in Colorbox Fresh Green pigment ink. I thought that frame looked a little bare with just the sentiment so I added the holly which is also Inkadinkado. I coloured in the holly with Spectrum Noir LG5, LG4 and LG2 and used DR2 for the berries.  I attached a piece of ribbon from my stash and then taped it on the card base.

I am entering this in:
