The hostess for this week's Doubledog Dare Challenge is sleepyinseattle (Joanne), who was willing to play out of turn to help another team member with computer problems. Joanne DARED the group to make a wreath with stamps, and there would be bonus points for flowers.
I think these little flowery sprigs might count as flowers, but just in case they don't, I put a RED flower on the ribbon. That's called covering your bases. I made the wreath out of a Tapestry holly sprig, and stamped around a wonderful sentiment. I free-hand drew a little branch for the bird to sit on.
Please feel free to join us in the challenge this week (and every week on Tuesday), and put DDC in your keyword so we can find it. Next week I will be your hostess. Have fun! (I think I can also add this to the RedDiva Gallery!)

Gorgeous! I love the branch for the cardinal to sit on - and that sweet corner punch is perfect - and just now I looked up to see that the cardinal is from the MS punch??? Now that's on my wish list too ;) TFS!

Oh, Anne this is perfect and definitely wins the bonus points!! Love your delicately beautiful wreath with the lovely holly and berries. These wreaths can be very addicting, I love them. Such a gorgeous holiday creation, really fabulous.
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!
