Christmas Wreath

Evening Folks
Hope you have all had a good Monday.  Work as usual for me but the day went quickly so I can't complain.
Spent a bit of time tonight putting together another christmas card.  This one is another simple one but a bit different.  See what you think.

I used a super stamp set from Woodware called Bubble Wreath.  I stamped out the wreath which is basically just lots of different size circles.  The little fern leaf stamp was also part of the set and I randomly stamped leaves.  Then came the fun part.  I covered all the little circles by using a combination of buttons, pearls, gems and stickles.
The rest of the card I kept quite simple in order to keep the focus on the wreath.

I really liked the way it came out that I decided to make a few more.

As I said, quite quick to do.  So that's another four christmas cards done.

Thanks for popping by and thanks in advance for any comments you wish to leave.  I really enjoy reading them and appreciate your support.
