Christmas Wreath

Hope you're having a great weekend! I've been down with a cold, put I'm back on my legs and have enjoyed some easy cardmaking. All pieces were cut out of snippets that lay on my table, I've been pushing them around for a few weeks not knowing what to make with them.

Challenges:
CASology: Festive
Crafty Catz Challenge: Christmas is Coming
Marks Finest Paper: Tutorial Challenge #122 wreath

Materials used:
Joanna Sheen pine dies, Memory box wreath die, Papermania sentiment stamped with black Versafine and heat embossed with extra fine clear powder, White Paper Pen.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated! Sometimes cardmaking is quite fun; dear hubby thought that the pine cones were leaves, oldest son that they were eggs and youngest son asked if they could be pine cones?! So I wonder what the receiver might think, hehe. I'm looking forward to seeing my students tomorrow! Have a great start on the new week!
Hugs and love
Maarit
