Glossy Berries for Christmas

Couldn't wait to ink up my new Papertrey Ink Spruce and Sprigs stamp set, along with some ink blending. The holly berries really pop once coated with Glossy Accents. Here's my card for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: So Glossy.

I created a mask using a circle die from my Nestabilities, and blended Berry Sorbet ink for the backdrop to my holly leaves and berries, coated with Glossy Accents. Using a paintbrush and my Aqua Mist ink pad, I splattered the white card base to coordinate with the Holiday Plaid card stock edge. My sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday was curved to somewhat surround the circle. This was adhered using Stampin' Up Dimensionals to raise it up from the card base.
