A Holiday Wreath

Hello everyone! Just before Christmas, I won some blog candy on Jen McGuire’s blog from the November Oh Deer Me Embellishment Kit, and when it arrived, I was delightfully surprised at all the beautiful goodies that were included...in fact, everything is inside a pretty square tin!
I am entering this card in this week’s challenge at Festive Friday. The inspiration photo is a snowy winter scene with a wreath on the side of a red barn, so I inked up a stamp from the kit, and colored it with Copics to create a Christmas wreath.

And, since this card is CAS, I would also like to enter into this week's challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More where we are being asked to create a Clean & Simple Card.
 


I wanted to keep it CAS, so after coloring the leaves and flowers, I added a small silver bow and a sentiment, and mounted it on a red 4 1/4 square cardstock card base. 

Well, that’s it for me ~ I hope everyone is doing well! 

Take care, and thanks so much for stopping by!
Barb
