Mojo Monday #431 and Merry Monday #188.....

Hello everyone: I have a card to share with you that will kick into gear my Christmas card production for this year. I love it when I can combine challenges and this time, I'm linking my card to the Mojo Monday sketch challenge and the Merry Monday Christmas challenge with a theme of "Hot Bevvies", here is my card.
This images are from an old and retired stamp set from Flourishes. I stamped them onto a couple of die cut pieces of Canson water color paper and, this time, I colored them with Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps dipped in baby oil. I added a bit of gold gel pen to the decorations on the tea pot and cup and I colored the Holly on it with SU Real Red and Garden Green.
The sentiment was stamped with SU Cherry Cobbler ink onto a piece of SU "Wooden Elements", retired embellishments from the 2014 Spring Catalog.

Here is a picture of the finished inside, both the sentiment and the Holly are from the same set.

And here are the banners that inspired this card.


Thank you so much for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
