Sweet Sunday......Christmas Wreath




Happy Sunday Peeps!!!


Here is the sweet sketch Karen has for us this week:


I pulled out my Stampin Up single stamp called Wonderful Wreath. I stamped the wreath with always artichoke ink and with old olive ink onto some very vanilla card stock. I cut out the always artichoke wreath and then cut out some of the leaves on the old olive wreath and added them to the artichoke wreath. I added some small cherry cobbler circles for berries on the wreath. I then punched my bird using the Modern Medley DSP and the two step Bird Punch. I added a Cherry Cobbler bow and top loop to the wreath. I added some small bells to my bow.


The base of my card is Crumb Cake card stock and the DSP is from the retired Deck the Halls pack, that DSP is matted with Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake card stock as well. I embossed a piece of Cherry Cobbler for the side strip and then added a small piece of DSP from the Modern Medley pack and a small piece of champagne glimmer paper to the strip. The small flag is also made with the champagne glimmer paper. I then finished off with three antique brads. No sentiment on the front of this one, but you defiantly know this is a Christmas card. 

Now let's see what the rest of the girls did with this fun sketch:
