Christmas Wreath

I have another Christmas card to share today...featuring a lovely new (to me) die set by Tim Holtz called 'Holiday Greens, Mini' that I picked up as part of a prize I won at That's Crafty a couple of weeks ago. I cut an assortment of 'greenery' from watercolour paper covered with 'smooshed' Distress Inks in various shades of green, then assembled them into a wreath shape, adding a few adhesive pearls and a little gingham ribbon bow. I attached it to my card using 3D foam pads, just adding a simple stamped sentiment (from the 'Merriest Wishes' set by Hero Arts).
