Here Come the Christmas Cards

So Let the fun begin
I'm going to give you 12 cards for this month, 12 for November, etc. They will be all different. And I confess right here and now, I drew my inspiration from fellow bloggers, however, none are exact matches to theirs. In a few cases, I followed a tutorial offered on You Tube. Whenever possible, I will supply a link.

So let's begin. Here is a white base with one white layer. I am giving my Nestabilitie Matting Basics a good work-out. The stamp used is from a new SU set called Watercolor Wishes. There is a trick to using these stamps and I have been unable to master it with consistency. Here, I have simply stamped the "outline".
Then, I colored the leaves with copics and popped one lone leaf at the end of the sentiment. Actually, I had a bit of a spot right there, and thought to mask it rather than tossing the white base. I rather think it works.
I used Crystal Effects to make the little berries pop.
As I am looking at this card on the blog, I am feeling that the branch appears un-grounded. Please feel free to give me feedback on this.
