joyful tidings...

Hello!  Popping in with a card that I made for a couple of challenges:  Festive Fridays (inspiration photo) and Freshly Made Sketches.


The current inspiration photo for Festive Fridays really caught my eye and I just had to make something.  Love the beautiful white chairs accented with that gorgeous red ribbon and pinecone treatment. I just recently got the Simon Says Stamp/Clearly Besotted stamp (Autumn Blessings) and die (Full Wreaths) set and so I used that to create my take on the photo... a lovely little wreath.  I pulled out my fibre paste, created a stencil using the MFT dispersed dots die and applied the paste to some white cardstock.  After applying the paste I added some ultra fine glitter.  Once the paste was dry I put my card together based on the layout from Freshly Made Sketches.  The sentiment is from the Stampin Up! set Christmas Messages.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Simon Says Stamp & Stampin Up!; Dies:  Simon Says Stamp and My Favorite Things; Fibre Paste:  Golden; Glitter:  Ultrafine Art Glitter; Inks:  Close to My Heart and Stampin Up!
