CASology 324 - Holly

It's been a while since I've had the time to play challenges. This week's cue card at CASology, along with the Rachel's design team card, had me getting out my toys to play along.

Half Full is a set I bought because I often give wine as a gift - as you do when you live in wine country - and it had lots of potential for tags and cards. It's so versatile that it's even got Christmas options and I've been wanting a chance to try those out. I know, nearly out of time on that one - but there's always next year!

I made two variations. One includes the bottle and one uses the debossed side of the folder. 

In both, the wine is coloured over with clear Wink of Stella that gives it a shimmery sparkle. I've used coloured pencils for the rest.

I like them both but my favourite is the one with the bottle.

The bit that makes me smile is on the inside.

I can't quite believe that I did all my other Christmas cards without remembering this wonderful 'Merry Christmas' was there waiting for me! Another case of 'next year'.
