Jolly Holly

It's the last of the Flower of the Month challenges at Daring Cardmakers , and December's flowers are a choice of Holly or Narcissus.



I am loving music paper (this is literally from an old music book :) )  more than ever at the moment! I've sewn around the edge and then distressed by turning and ripping the edges. The tag has been given the scrunch effect - scrunched into a ball then flattening out, then iinking to highlight the creases. I've layered chipboard frame and a cute resin candy cane onto the tag, and of course some plastic holly which I've splashed white paint and glass glitter onto. Finally some rusty jingle bells, twine and seam binding add a  festive flourish!

Challenges:
