Christmas Wreath

Hi everyone.  The challenge at CAS Christmas this month is Wreath, hosted by the talented Linda.  I thought I'd add one more card to the gallery before it closes.  I was inspired by Jeanne, who entered a card using the wreath image from Watching Bloom (Memory Box) which is retired.  I pulled out the set from my stash and there was already a wreath stamped, watercoloured, and die-cut.  Really?  I made it for another project that it didn't quite work for ... it was that easy to make this card.  I also used a background of embossed falling snow from my stash (gift from a friend) AND a JOY die already cut from black.  It was meant to be.  Took me about 5 minutes to put together. :)  Gotta love that!

I am so glad all those different elements came together so quickly and easily on this card. It was clearly meant to be and it is beautiful xx

Wow, it sounds like all the elements were waiting for this occasion, Loll! Your wreath card is so pretty and taking only 5 min to make it is a big bonus!!

I'm glad it didn't work for the other challenge because it's perfect for this one, Loll.

Beautiful card with beautiful colours and a great coordinating black die cut sentiment, and although a quick make it looks a million dollars Loll..love the snowfall background too. x

Bonnie said...

It's a great feeling to find homes for these pieces that weren't quite right but fit together perfectly to form a new card! Awesome wreath and perfect for the Wreath Challenge, my friend!

What a pretty little wreath! This is wonderful, Loll!

A great wreath stamp, right? I appreciate you looking at and commenting on my card.

I too have a little tray of half made pieces - they sure do come in handy for a quick card if I remember to check the tray out. Lovely wreath card Loll, have a nice day, Robyn

It's so great when you find things in your stash already done. Beautiful wreath on the falling snow background. Beautiful, Loll.

Brenda said...

This is a pretty wreath Loll, I love that you had it already colored, your card came together fast and your right, you gotta love that! Hugs, Brenda

A lovely wreath - it has great dimension with that embossed panel behind it.

Lucky you and what amazing items you have in your bits box! I have this MB set and still love it. Another brilliant idea to use it for a Christmas card.

TK said...

Beautiful, and so good when cards fall together for you :o)

Leslie Miller said...

Serendipity, for sure, and so gorgeous! Ohhh, to find things like this in my stash just waiting to be put together, sigh.

Julia Aston said...

Your brightly colored wreath is so pretty popped up over the embossed dots background Loll! How fun that it was already made in your stash box just not put together! This wreath would work for many seasons just changing the colors used! xx
