Non Traditional Wreath

Second week of January and the 52 {Christmas{ Card Throwdown team are here to help you create your cards for Christmas 2014.  The idea is that if you make one card a week for our challenge you will have (almost) 52 cards ready to send without any last minute stress- works for me- everyone got a handmade card this year and I was very proud of myself!
This week it is a colour challenge. You don't have to use them all - a minimum of three, but do not add any colours (other than a neutral for your card /stamping base). They are wonderfully non-Christmas colours so you can have a ball!

 I chose not to use the yellow

I used the sentiment from Delightful Dozen and the wreath stamp is a new one my husband popped in my Christmas stocking -clever of him to know just what I wanted ;) I have added just a touch of Christmas sparkle, which you can see in this close up. I think I'll pop this one into  Crafty Hazelnuts extra Christmas Challenge for January too


  1. Louise - this is absolutely stunning! I love the wreath and the pretty touch of sparkle too! Love it!

  2. I love the colors you chose and the enhancement of small berries with golden christmas sparkle is a gorgeous finish.
    Happy New Year to you too, Louise. Best wishes for you and your family.
    Hugs Rosi
