Merry Christmas card

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are all well today.  Here is
another DT card made for 'Beccy's Place' again using Beccy's
 digi image 'Merry Christmas'. I decided to ink my embossing
folder for a different look,using distress ink. I was pleased
 how much texture I got  when using my linen card stock.I 
embossed the wording part too and coloured it with Promarkers
highlighting the berries on that and the holly berries on the bg
 image using my red gelly roll pen for a sparkly look.Don't
 forget Beccy's November challenge too, details  HERE.
Come and have a closer look at my card...........
ps.My cold has gone at last but I am still coughing a bit. We 
looked after our grandson Charlie yesterday and he was 
so good. Lots of smiles and giggles and games of  'peep'
which he loves so much.Off to see our other grandson  Alex
 on Sunday too, they are keeping us so busy these
 grandbabies !
