Merry Monday Wreath

It's time for Merry Monday!  It doesn't seem possible that it's week 24!  That means that I have at least 24 Christmas cards in my box.  I'm looking forward to doing away with the mad rush to get cards done in December!

Here's my card this week.

This is Lesley's fantastic sketch.

Be sure to go see what the rest of the design team has done.  You'll be in for a treat!

I hope you'll be inspired to join in this challenge.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Holiday's and Wishes
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, DSP scraps
Other:  Wreath Die (Poppystamps), Square Lattice EF, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Basic Rhinestones, Red Alcohol Marker

Yesterday I went to Roanoke Rapids to do a Stamp Stack with my stampin' friends there.  It's always such a treat to spend time with them.  When I got home, I was tired, but inspired!  I especially love it when they take my design and make it their own.  I get such good ideas that way!

I'm so glad you stopped by to take a look!  Thanks so much for your comments and encouragement.

Stunning! I LOVE these colours together Bonnie - just so striking. I was also thinking about creating a wreath when I saw this sketch, but I don't think mine would've been so pretty!

Twenty four cards already? Wow! I'm turning green with envy. This one is so pretty, that will be received and loved, I'm sure.

What a great take on the sketch! That wreath is perfect, with the sweet ribbon.
Cheers, Karen

Such a gorgeous creation - I love what a feature you make of the embossing as well as the wreath!

I applaud your forward thinking Bonnie! This is a great design - I like the way the wreath overlaps its layer.

Classy and elegant card Bonnie! Love that white space and the pretty wreath!

Your wreath is fab and I'm so jealous you've got so many cards made. I just haven't been able to bring myself round to making Christmas cards yet. x
