Ready for some inspiration? Here we go!
I have used two stamps from

I wanted to make a CAS card to really show off the stamps - so first of all I used a brayer to add SU Garden Green ink to some white card, I then cut two strips to add to a cream card base. 

I used Mowed Lawn Distress Ink to distress around the edges and stamped the images with black Versafine. Finally I added red liquid pearls to the holly berries.

(Don't forget to comment below to be included in the prize draw)

Now hop on to Stephanie's...

Happy Hopping!!
