Merry Christmas Wreath and a couple of challenges


I'm popping in to share a card I made while waiting for some pies to finish baking in the oven. They are for the Meals On Wheels delivery tomorrow at our church and I didn't have enough ingredients to make US one, so we are being tortured by the smell tonight! They are Chess, too. Egads. Mine and Big Daddy's favorite. I almost always make him one if I make one for someone else. Oops. And to top it off, the poor thing, I ate his last ice cream cone today! He was not happy when he went to get it tonight and I was all "Oh. I'm sorry. I meant to tell you about that....."   Giggle. I did feel kinda bad.  .......   Just kinda.

I have a card inspired by the Curtain Call: Clearly Christmas Challenge and Cas(e) This Sketch.

Here is the inspiration photo and the sketch:

I had to use this Rustic Wreath stamp from PTI. I've figured out that I am a sucker for wreath stamps. I have two Christmas ones right now in my stash. I've had to stop myself from buying another one that I like and I've had another that I've sold somewhat recently.

I used the sentiment and bow from Avery Elle's Winter Wreath stamp set. (See I'm telling on myself anyway by using both on one card. Insert red-face here.) The bow and the wreath are both gold embossed and I used watercolors to fill in some of the leaves. The sentiment is clear embossed over black. I stitched down this panel onto a Hawaiian Shores cardstock base and then added sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!

God Bless,
Mandy Pin It
