Winter Holly - Christmas in July

Hello Everyone!
It's Christmas in July so I've made a winter themed card called Winter Holly.


To make my card I used a Cuttlebug Snowflake Flourish embossing folder and a Holly Flourish die cut by Cheery Lynn Designs.  I coloured the Holly die cut with a silver Sharpie marker and applied diamond glitter glue to it.  I made my own pearl embellishments with Dimensional Glue by Sparkle n Sprinkle and once they were dry I used Pearl by Ranger Perfect Pearls and dusted over the dried glue to pearlize the glue.  I attached four pearls to the one side of my card and also edged the card and all the layers with a silver Sharpie marker.

I've entered my card in some fun challenges:
