A Christmas Post!

A quick post before I'm off for the morning. I've got a pretty busy day ahead of me and might not be able to post anything else until maybe Wednesday or Thursday. We'll see how busy I am. Well isn't this colorful yet festive. Another card I'm proud of. It turned out a lot better than I imagined in my head. I mean these colors do look great together
you have to admit :) Again I tried to stay away from a lot of embellishing extras. Personally I think the paper piercing did the trick for that added pop that it needed.
The image was stamped with permanent ink and water colored with SU WCC and an Aqua Pen.
I added a little white with a white gel pen. I tried to age the paper a little but not too much because I thought it might take away from the color of the papers I used.
So here is what was used to make this card.
TIA for looking :)

Stamps: "Stampin' Up" Winter Post
Paper: SU Not Quite Navy, Bazzill (green), and generic speckled paper in 2 shades, generic brown.
