CAS for Christmas

A very simple CAS card today to add to the Christmas pile.  I've had this idea in my head for a wee while and was keen to get it down on card, so I got my stamps out for a play.
 Both the stamps are from the same set, a set from Papermania's Home For Christmas range from a few years ago.  I simply stamped the holly sprig in opposite corners and the sentiment in the centre.  What haven't shown up in the photos are the embossed double lines above and below the sentiment, which I did on my Hougie Board, for some reason my camera didn't like this card.
I coloured the holly with a Distress Marker and a damp paintbrush, then added some red Stickles to the berries.  The final touch was to add some tiny stars punched from mirri card, they're actually the waste from a Tonic border punch but I often use it as a punch in its own right as I think these weeny stars make great embellishments.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Papertake - Two by Two - I used two images

Allsorts - #332 - No Design Paper
