Christmas Wreath

This is another card that I made for my Mum to send one of her friends.  I used a gorgeous image and papers that came with my Making Cards magazine a while back.


I have kept things quite flat again because this card will be posted, I just raised the image and sentiment a little with foam pads and added a few gems.  The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

CHNC Challenge Extra - Anything Christmas Goes
Creatalicious Challenge 81 - Merry Christmas
Emerald Faeries Challenge 74 - Merry Christmas
Natalie and Amy's Challenge 39  -Christmas

This is beautiful, Pauline! I love the wreath. I want to ask you... you do a lot of visiting and commenting... are you getting the robot verification? I am getting very frustrated with it. Picking out the photos of grass, cactus, taxis, trees, I'm about ready to scream! But I haven't seen anyone else mention it. Is it just me? Thanks!

I think it's nice of you to make cards for your mum as well, a handmade card beats a store bought one any day, and this one is so traditional and beautiful.
