Christmas Greetings...

Hello!!  Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!!  This morning I put together this card for the current Merry Monday Christmas challenge that is closing is just a few hours!  I'm also adding this to the current MFT sketch challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of layering.  When I saw the MFT sketch this idea started rolling around to create a snowflake wreath.  So when I got up early I decided to give it a try.  After die cutting all the snowflakes using the MFT Snowflake Splendor stand alone dies I spent sometime determining which ones would work for the wreath and then how to lay them out.  I decided that layering the die cuts was the best way to go.  The base of the wreath was die cut from MFT silver glitter cardstock using to AJVD Polka Dot circle dies and then adhered to light gray cardstock die cut with an AJVD Stitched Dot rectangle die.  Then I got to work adding all the snowflakes using Multi Medium Matte.   The sentiment from the MFT Snow Globe Sentiments was stamped in gray and then die cut with an MFT Slanted Sentiment Label die.   I adhered the sentiment and then finished with Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins.    I hope my "snow" works for the gals at MM!

Thanks for stopping by today... have a good one!!

Supplies:  Cardstock: MFT white, silver glitter, SSS fog, SU! Pool Party; Stamps:  MFT; Dies:  MFT and AJVD; Ink:  VersaFine Smoky Gray; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh
