Traditional christmas

"Traditional Christmas colours"
is the challenge over at Glitter n Sparkle this week 
and I got another gorgeous image from the wonderful
'A Day for Daisies'...called The Mistletoe.

I knew straight away, that I would make my Hubbys Christmas card with this image.
I spent ages trying to come up with a suitable sentiment to put with it...
he knows this is just the kind of thing I would say to him :)
But then I had the task of making it 'not too girly.'
So, the traditional colours theme was good for this card...
I used my promarkers to colour the image
 and a snowflake embossing folder for the background,
along with  DCWV green backing paper.
I simply cut the mistletoe myself, from green card, with my tiny scissors.
The HUSBAND was cut on my die cutter - sizzix wingo zingo font. 
The holly was punched with a 50p holly punch I bought on a car boot sale over summer. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges....
