Holiday Trio 9

Here is Barbara Diane's description of her card.  "The image was printed on white CS and was colored with markers and the background was done in 4 shades of chalk – beige/brown/blue with a touch of yellow. The image was then cut out along the outside of the arch and attached to a 3-layer card front of yellow/blue/black CS – of which I first outlined the edges of the blue and yellow in black to coordinate with the black edge of the image. I used a punch for the 3 different shapes of leaves and then outlined each individual leaf in black and drew free hand the lines on each leaf. I then punched small circles for the berries and outlined them in black. The leaves/berries were added to the card using glue dots to give them dimension. "
