Rejoice

Hi friends! Happy Friday!  I found a little time to sneak away and stamp this week and just had to work some more with the Rejoice paper scraps that were still on my desk from my Mojo Monday card.  Here I paired the papers with the Holiday Greetings set and the Viva la Verve December Week 3 sketch.

Everything came together really quickly, especially since I was mainly using scraps.  I added a little doodled dotted line border around the papers to give each layer a little definition.  One layer is crimped and brushed with white ink to match the faded look of the background paper.  The snowflake is stamped in Riding Hood Red, which I stamped off twice before stamping on my circle for a watermark effect, then embossed the Merry Christmas sentiment over the top in Early Espresso.  I made the wreath from lacey circle Nestabilities, then added Rouge liquid pearls for the berries.  I finished off with a big red and white bow and a Flourished Trim border (on sale right now during our Stocking Stuffer Sale).

Just beautiful, I really like how you cleverly made a wreath from your circle loopy dies. This is a wonderful take on this sketch. That red striped ribbon bow is scrumptious as well.
