A Wreath

I was inspired by the colors in Color My Heart Color Dare #221 to create a Holiday card.

The Snowflakes embossing folder was used to add a bit of texture to the Poppy cardstock.  And the new Thin Cuts available to coordinate with the Wreath stamp make it so easy to cut the wreath shape.  In order to create a bit of dimension and border for the wreath, it was also cut from Goldrush cardstock and then offset just a bit to add some additional contrast for the shape.  One of the fabulous Holiday sentiments from the Very Merry stamp set adds a bit of cheer.  Some red Enamel Gems and a piece of ribbon from the Rustic Home ribbon pack add the finishing touches.  

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
