Berries in the Snow

Sharing another CAS card today made for this month's Penny Black and More challenge reminder. Did you play along yet? We have a really fun challenge - use black and white plus one extra color. Still time to join us if you haven't already or if you'd like to submit another entry. We have some nice prizes to give away and not that many entries yet, so your chance at winning are good!

For my card today I used the stamp "Berry Bevy" by Penny Black.
Image was stamped onto xpress it blending card using memento tuxedo black ink, the berries were colored using copic markers. I added some glassy glaze over the berries, really need go get a new bottle of that, as mine is really old and didn't want to come out nicely. 
I tore some paper to create a hill and added white stickles glitter. Sentiment is from the set Brush Pine. The card base is Cherry cobbler by Stampin up, which matches the berries really well in real life, it just looks too dark in the photo. (I need to buy another OTT lamp for better photos!)
Be sure to visit the challenge blog to see the wonderful creations from the rest of the team and to take a peek at the prizes.

Hope you are almost ready for the holidays. I finally sent out some cards to my family overseas yesterday...not even sure  they'll arrive in time for Christmas, and sadly I have to admit this year they were store bought...(I really should challenge myself to make Christmas cards all year long!)
Also spent the day yesterday making Christmas cookies. Can't believe Christmas is in 7 days!!
Wishing you all a wonderful Holiday season!

Merry Christmas!
