"Festive" Seasons Greetings

This DP from the Festive line by My Mind's Eye reminded me of this previously uninked holly/berry stamp on the left that I got several years ago on a clearance rack! I'm afraid the subtle Perfect Pearls on my holly leaves won't show well in my uploaded photo. Some cards are just so much prettier IRL, aren't they?
I'm so thrilled that Michaels is now carrying paper by My Mind's Eye and Basic Grey, because I don't already have enough paper - LOL!!! Ironically, even after the 275 sheets of Bazzill I got at their warehouse sale, I struggled to find colors to compliment this DP! If I could figure out how to get paid for the time I spend searching for papers that coordinate, I'd be a wealthy woman!!! ;~)
Paper: Bazzill Green & PTI Vintage Cream CS; My Mind's Eye Festive Line DP
Stamps: Rubber Stampede (holly); Annette Watkins (greeting); Inkadinkado (small holly)
Inks: VersaMark & PTI Ripe Avacado
Embellishments: Ranger Perfect Pearls; Stickles; ribbon from stash
