Holly Wreath (Joanna Sheen Special)

This is another of the cards that I created for the Designer Cardmaking Joanna Sheen Special recently.  I was commissioned to create five cards using the fabulous free kit that comes with the magazine, for this one I used the stamps and two papers from the 102 papers & toppers.


I stamped the pine boughs to create the base and then stamped the holy and winter rose several times.  I coloured them with ProMarkers and fussy cut them so that I could layer them up to create a dimensional wreath.


The sentiment is also one of the stamps in the collection.


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

Another wonderful card Pauline you really do have an eye for detail. I'm your latest new encourager of your blog, hope you might pop over to mine too, if you have the time.
Thanks very much for your great inspiration, no wonder Joanna Sheen asked you to make some cards for them.
