Starting afresh - 1st Christmas card for 2020

I felt like creating a new card for a couple of challenges, so here's my first Christmas card for 2020.

I stamped the branch and sentiment from the (huge) Pinkfresh Studio stamp set that I received with a copy of Creative Stamping magazine a few months ago and did a little ink blending using It's a boy (CP ink) and one of my brand-new blending brushes (Taylored Expressions). Next, I coloured in the leaves and berries using Polychromos pencils before trimming my panel to size and mounting it onto my A2 card base.

I'm playing at:

Pinkfresh Studio - All things holidays

Double Trouble - #46 Something, Anything, Everything
Thing 1: Anything
Thing 2: New blending brushes
Thing 3: Cupcake Inspirations challenge

Cupcake Inspirations - CIC485 Holidays

CASology - #358 Branch

CHNC - #470 Anything Christmas goes
