Christmas is Coming

I had a terrible time taking a good shot of this card and this was the best of a bad bunch. I took it outside to see if natural light helped, nope! Anyway, you'll have to trust me that the photo doesn't do this card justice! I used the set "Joyous Celebrations" which has one tiny mistletoe branch I was able to use to make this wreath. Love how it turned out. The close-up shots give you a much clearer idea of the true colours in the wreath.

I did some nifty shading with my Cherry Cobbler marker to make the bow pop.

Stamps : Joyous Celebrations, Sleigh Ride (sentiment)
Ink : Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Summer Starfruit, Cherry Cobbler
Cardstock : Very Vanilla, Champagne Shimmer, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories : 2 1/2" and 1 1/4" circle punches, Window Frames Framelit, Lg Scallop Edgelit, Artichoke Seam Binding Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details, Dimensionals, Polka Dot EF.
