Merry Monday Holly Wreath

Good Morning.

It's Merry Monday time.

I'm the hostess this week and this is what I chose.


I love wreaths and I'd love to have one just like this one.

Here's what I have today.


The holly vine is from Memory Box.

I sponged color on it very carefully with a makeup applicator
and ever so gently arranged it around the aperture.

The berries were punched from a snippet of Real Red with
the 1/16" Circle Punch.

Snippet use gets me into 

I hope you'll put a wreath on your Christmas card
and take it over to 

And be sure to go over and check out the wonderful
cards that the super talented Design Team has come up with.
WOW!

Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

Oh Bonnie, this card is beautiful! I am loving the wreath and love that you die cut a window for the sentiment to peek through. Love that embossing folder too. Ahhh, I guess before we know it, it will be winter and the snow will be falling. Hugs, Brenda

Great choice for the MM challenge - I love wreaths on cards. I wasn't planning on making anymore cards before I leave on my trip on Thursday, but I have some new stamps that would make a perfect wreath card so might just have to fit that in! Your card is beautiful - love all the white space and the way the sentiment is in the centre, with an embossed background everywhere else. It's CAS perfection!

Gorgeous. Love the EF and of course the MB wreath. Terrific gentle sponging too, cause I know how easily those tiny pieces can tear. It's perfect with this specific wreath on that particular snowfall dots folder. TFS
