A Season of Holly and Ivy today

Welcome to my favorite day, well maybe top three favorite days for this release. bawhahaha This new set is called The Holly and the Ivy! I am just taken with these doves, they are just beautiful. Marcella is such a talented and fantastic artist and I STILL am amazed at each set she designs.
So I went with a warm and cozy feeling for this first card. With the chocolates, blues and some Dewfrost MB paper for the background you can't go wrong with this card. I lightly sponged the frame with the Spellbinders label still attatched to the panel for a soft glow behind the doves. I added a few rows of double sided ribbon and voila. I actually made this card for one of the girls at hubbies work for her sets of Christmas cards. So now I have to make me one. hee hee

For my sweet and pretty doves below I went with the girly side and some creamy colors with the satin ribbon, pinks and celery color. I sponged this frame also in the pinks, I added some pearls and flowers as well. Another one for the girls at hubbies work.

Now don't miss what the girls have created with this set or you will be sorry. Seriously this release ROCKS your stamping selection!Christine Cindy Julie Latisha Laura Leslie, and Sharon.
See you back here tomorrow!
