Hello, and happy Saturday to you!  I hope your weekend has gotten off to a good start.

This week is theme week at 52 {Christmas} Card ThrowdownGill, our hostess, has chosen an interesting one: mistletoe and wine.  I knew I had a couple of mistletoe images, but I had to think about the wine… and I finally settled on using burgundy cardstock for it.  (Get it?  Burgundy?  Wine?  OK, maybe that’s a stretch, but going by Gill’s rules it works!)  The mistletoe berries have been covered with crystal lacquer so they have a bit of shine to them in real life.  I used a subtle background stamp on the burgundy strip of cardstock to give it a little more visual interest.  The narrow green strip has a scored line above and below the piercing – I’m not sure how well that shows in the photo.
