I was inspired to get a Christmas page done when I saw the latest Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. I think part of it was also my friend Belinda's little wreath on a window sample too. But anyway, here's the sketch:
And here's my take:
I went back to the first Waltzingmouse Stamps set that I purchased: Sewing Box Christmas with the little holly leaves. My craft desk was littered with the little leaves last night as I turned it into an assembly line of stamping, clear embossing, and cutting. It took until today to really set up the wreath on the paper how I wanted it (which including needing about three more leaves). I decided to add some dimension by popping up a leaf here and there. Buttons in pearl red completed the deal. And what's a wreath without some sort of bow, or in my case a star tag from the Seasons of Love - Tags set!
Thanks for stopping by!
