holly by golly, um... me christmas card by 

snow on holly deliberately shot slow freehand and shaky then manipulated just a bit in ps elements. in ps i adjusted conrast and added extra sharpness and sturation then added, deleted or moved a few of the holly berries to give it the flow i wanted

this one is dedicated to my rb friend aussiebushstick who’s very kind encouragement was right there when i really needed it today as i uploaded this card
