Christmas Card Challenge #45

Good morning! Happy Sunday! It's time for Christmas Card Challenge #45. This week's challenge is to use this photo as inspiration.

I took a bit of loose interpretation from it, but I was inspired by the wreath, so I decided to make a card with a wreath on it. I used the Seasons Greetings stamp set by There She Goes.

The patterned paper is from the Tinsel and Twig collection by The Girls Paperie. I embossed
the papers with two different embossing folders. I stamped the "Seasons Greetings" sentiment before embossing the green cardstock.

This layout follows an older Mojo Monday sketch. I colored my image with Copic markers, cut it out with Circle Nestabilities, and sponged around the edges. I finished my card off with some red pearls, a ribbon, and a stick pin that I made myself! I've been making a bunch of those for a Split Coast Stampers stick pin swap I am doing.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to check out the rest of the inspiration at the Christmas Card Challenges blog! :)
