Vintage Wreath

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

My sweet friend Michele sent me some of these wreath die cuts.  I have really enjoyed
putting them on cards.  Thanks again, dear friend.

Since this one was stamped on Bristol, I colored with Distress Markers and my waterbrush.
Extra detail was added with watercolor pencils.

I used a Quickie Glue Pen to go around the outline between the sentiment and foliage,
then heat embossed with Antique Gold Embossing Powder.

To put the focus on the poinsettia in this wreath, I chose this gorgeous poinsettia 3D
Embossing Folder.
