Festive Wreath



Since I've had so much fun playing along with the Merry Monday challenge I decided I should check out the Festive Friday challenge as well.  The photo they provided this fortnight immediately sparked an idea in my head and it actually translated pretty easily onto my card.  Love when that happens!  I made the wreath using branches from Papertrey's Bells & Boughs set (here it is again!) and added some Stickle berries to it for some colour and shine.  Quick, simple and flat for mailing.  Awesome!   







Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Real Red) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Lakeside 6x6) Pebbles
Stamps:  (Leaves from Bells & Boughs, Berries from Holida Cheer, Christmas from City Scene Christmas Sentiments) Papertrey Ink
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Real Red, Old Olive, Garden Green, Wild Wasabi) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Wonderful Words:  Holiday) Papertrey Ink
Glitter:  (Xmas Red Stickles) Ranger

There's a Festive Friday, as well as a Merry Monday? Must check that out! You have totally captured the inspiration photo. Really must stop hoarding my woodgrain patterned papers. ;)
