Well, it's really time to get serious about Christmas, isn't it? And happy Black Friday to you all! I'm sure everyone is eager to find the big sales you've been waiting for, and Power Poppy has a big "Salesgiving" this weekend starting off with a new release of four digital sets. This is one of them, and I had such fun coloring it.
I resized my wreath, die cut it, and then colored it (my favorite part of making a card). I had to fussy cut the green mat. Then I struggled with what to do next and rummaged through my scrap bin and found this great Penny Black die. I die cut another one and layered them, and then I used a LOT of dimensional tape to pop it up on the green (but I added the seam binding first). Then I added my wreath, and it was done. I am eager to use one or two of the other wreaths, and they are so versatile and inspiring after seeing both the Instant Gardeners and Bloom Brigade joined in today's blog hop.
Thank you so much for taking a closer look at my card, and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week...and don't spend too much, right? Hehe! Hugs, sweet friends!

Bestill my heart Cheryl, this is absolutely stunning! Wow! I love this wonderful wreath image that you colored so beautifully (I love the colors you chose too!). I appreciated reading your journey in the making of this card. Some cards come together so easily, and others, require more effort. Your efforts paid off in a really big way Cheryl because this card is a true show stopper my friend! Hugs! ~Karen.

Ooh, such a gorgeous wreath and you brought it to life with your awesome coloring. The dies and green background just made it even more beautiful. Love the sentiment font. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Another stunning card. Beautifully layered and presented with lots of thought going into the presentation. I am going to have to look into the "Perfect Layers Tool". This image would look beautiful coloured in the Australian bush colours - with little yellow puff balls of wattle - the leaves a bluish green and the little berried coloured in redish browns like gum nuts.
