Season's Greetings.

Hi there!

I have another Christmas card to show you... and it's one of those cards which turned out the way I saw it in my mind's eye... LOVE it when that happens!



The wreath is a free cutting file from SVG cuts. I used plain white acrylic paper to cut it, then colored it with a gold Pentel paint marker. The large pearls have been in my stash for ages. It always seems too large for any project, but I think it works this time, used as baubles in my wreath!
Sentiment stamped on vellum , layered on purple card stock, and popped it with foam tape.

I had the help from a few challenges  to make this card:


Less is more  ~ Christmas card in non traditional colors

Just us girls challenge ~ Wreath

Virginia's view challenge ~ All things Metallic

Simon says stamp ~ Anything goes

Addicted to stamps ~ CAS

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Groete en 'n lekker Dinsdag more!! Ek gaan nou Survivor kyk!!!!
