DAY 4 of the 12 DAYS of CHRISTMAS and TUESDAY TAGGERS

Welcome to Day#4 and forgive me please....i have gone all stylish..... TUESDAY TAGGERS new challenge theme is 'HOLLY'...... and i wanted to do something using a SMEARED INK goddess, i also wanted to keep to minimal use of colour.. and this is the result...... I stamped the goddess and embossed her in gold.... i over stamped her with some HOLLY, that i also embossed in gold..... cut the image down and matted onto gold, black and gold again.
I used a card front from last year (i love to reuse stuff!)..... stamped and embossed my greeting in gold..... lots of gold going on here!!!!
stuck my goddess panel on, then put the completed 'front' onto a black card base...... its difficult to see as i use a black background for my photos.....

I used tiny red 'pearls' as the holly berries ...and 3 (just 'cos i wanted too!) just above the goddess panel.
The list of JOLLY BLOGGERS is at the top of my side bar...... and it would be great if you could join in with us this week at TUESDAY TAGGERS.
Now you can all leave me a sarcastic comment about my stylish, non grungy, non macabre GOLDEN CHRISTMAS CARD!
