Christmas wreath ...

Words have escaped me this morning ... so I will spare you from my drivel and get straight down to business!!

Another Christmas card!

I was lucky enough to win a challenge at UNIKO and could choose a stamp set - a difficult choice to make when there are so many brilliantly design sets to choose between.  So it seemed fitting to use the stamp set for the new challenge at UNIKO - the theme is Christmas which fits nicely with my need to get my cards finished!!

I drew a circle lightly in pencil and then stamped the holly leaves and berries.  I masked off the leaves before stamping and heat embossing the fir leaves.  Stamped the sentiment and popped it on with foam adhesive.  I edged the panel with distress ink (very subtle!) before mounting the panel with fun foam to the card base.

I used:
UNIKO:  Winter Foliage Stamp Set
Distress INks - Festive Berries, Pine Needles
WOW Gold Embossing Powder

I'm entering the following challenges:
