Jolly Holly !!

This week over at Susie & Vikki‘s Christmas Club the theme is "Holly" , I made this card using kraft card from SU and some thick red card that I distressed the edges of but NO designer paper instead I inked a cuttlebug embossing folder with old olive Stampin' up ink and ran it through the big shot machine with a cream die cuts shape so it embossed and printed at the same time ...neat effect don't you think !!?
The sentiment is also from SU the holly sprig is from BoBunny and the ribbon is American crafts, and all stitched together on my fab sewing machine.
I have entered this into the following challenges
