"A Wreath Full of Wishes"


I am still working on those Christmas cards. I am over half done. Many I will hand deliver which is good as the postage is terrible on any that have any 'bumps'! I used a new Magnolia stamp and colored her with Copics. I used my Nestabilites to frame her and added a Christmas wreath behind her. I added little half pearls to keep my wreath look going. I used a dotted swiss and candy cane embossing folder to add texture. I add some holly leaves and pine cone stickers and then a sheer red bow with a snowflake button to  finish off my card. I also used my favorite Christmas stamp for the sentiment.
I am entering this card at the following challenges. (For Raise the bar my hobby in this card would be gardening....the fruit in her skirt!)

I like how you have her sitting inside the wreath and I adore pinecones so this is right up my alley. Now if I could just come thru the screen and put a teensy little smile on her...
