Christmas Wreath and PPA #12 Winner!!

For this Pals Paper Arts Challege #12 I just saw a Christmas wreath in the sketch! So I got out the "Autumn Days" stamp set with the pine and pinecone stamp. I used Dusty Durango and Old Olive markers to color the stamp, then, after stamping on Whisper White,cut them out. With my Circle Scissors I cut out the Old Olive circles and made a base for my wreath. I sponged some Old Olive ink on the pine to add some color, and punched out the little berries and glued them on. A bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter adds some wow to the overall effect, though it doesn't show up in the picture. The center salutation is from the Level 1 set, "Holiday Best." I also used markers to color it in, then added a rhinestone for a little bling~ The ribbon is "Mistletoe," from the Holiday Mini. The DSP is "Christmas Cocoa Specialty." This card was fun to make! Thanks PPA for the challenge!
