WCMD challenges at Ellen Hutson

Hello!
First of all, I want to drop a quick thank you for the sweet comments to yesterday's post. That's why this crafting community rocks!

Now, time to share a card. As you all know for sure, this past weekend was World Card Making Day, and there were many celebrations and challenges everywhere, so I spent most of my weekend in the craft room playing along with some of them. 
At Ellen Hutson, they had a group of challenges that caught my eye, so the card I am sharing is for Challenge #5: the trend watch challenge.
I decided to use the hexagon trend and my Silhouette to create this shaped card. I absolutely love that shape, so I probably will be using it again in other cards!
I used the silhouette to cut everything on this card. The holly and the sentiment are die cuts from Hero Arts that I cut out of white paper and colored using distress inks. 
To color the card base, I used Iced Spruce, and stamped over it the Magical Background using the same ink. Then I decided I wanted the center of the hexagon to be lighter, so I cut a vellum hexagon to tone it down.
I glued everything together and added some glossy accents to the berries and the sentiment to finish it off.
I hope you liked the card and I'll be back later with another one!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
