merry & bright...

Hello friends!!  I have a little "just for fun" card that I made with a recently purchased Hero Arts stamp called "Color a Wreath".  Since this is a Hero Arts stamp I'm going to be entering it into their current contest in the "A Few of My Favorite Things" category.  What is my favorite thing... paper piecing!


Lately I have been making more projects that fall into the "I have to because I have a commitment" category than into the "I just want to make something" category.  It was kinda getting me down and taking the fun out of paper crafting.  Over the last few days I have been able to have the time to make some just for fun projects and I'm feeling so much better!    I stamped the wreath on Rustic White cardstock and twice on some plaid patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Mistletoe Magic pad.  One full bow was trimmed out from the patterned paper and just the top portion of the bow from the second patterned paper bow.  The two were adhered with a Zot.  I pulled out my large collection of sequins and using the colors from the bow found sequins that were a good match.  After adhering all the sequins I added Black Diamond Stickles and the bow.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts set "Joy to All".

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Rustic White; Stampin Up! Pear Pizzazz; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Stamps:  Hero Arts:  Sequins:  Vintage silver & gold; Lawn Fawn; Black Diamond Stickles
