DD#77, Merry Monday #82, Inkspirational #42 and CFC119


Hi everyone, I hope you are all well! 

I've made this card for a few challenges: Dynamic Duos: Red and Aqua, Merry Monday: red, aqua, white and circles, Inkspirational #42: wreath and CAS-ual Fridays: heat or dry embossing.


I've been lucky enough to go to a few craft shows recently and have some new stash to play with. I cut the wreath once in aqua card and once in red, cut the red flowers out and stuck them on to the wreath which I found was easier said than done! It's very fiddly to do and to my dismay one of the tiny flowers disappeared onto the floor under my craft desk never to be seen again and I had used my last piece of Real Red card, so I hope it doesn't show too much! 

I attached the wreath to some embossed white card, cut the sentiment banner and added a little soft inking and a sentiment. There's a bit of stamped woodgrain behind the sentiment and some tiny pearls here and there.

Hope you're having a good week and enjoying making your Christmas cards.

Take care, Sue x

Sue, this is so pretty! The colors are shown so delicately with your design. I like the woodgrain stamping- a great detail and polka dot embossing would be on every card I make- love it! Thanks for sharing with the Dynamic Duos this week- God Bless.
