When I bought the Holiday Petals and Leaves set I had little projects in mind for it like Christmas tags and perhaps even mini cards but while browsing through Pinterest (as you do), I was inspired by Lisa Spangler's wreath card which you can see here.  Lisa has used a different stamp set but the leaves are very similar in this set.

Being conscious of the fact I had cased Lisa's card for this weeks challenge, I decided to use the holly leaves, berries and bow in the set and make a Christmas wreath card !



You can see a list of everything I used below !

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you make !






Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a great day !

I cut the tag from watercolour paper, inked it with distress inks and then dripped water onto it and left it to dry. I love this effect.

I'm a sucker for birds and when I saw these bird stamps, I just had to get them !  The branch from Tim Holtz' set Urban Tapestry was perfect for this project.
