Beautiful Christmas Wreath

     My second post today and another for the Month of Holiday Cards at Beccy's Place.  We're back to using the alphabet as the theme and today is "W" so one of Beccy's Wreaths was an easy choice. :-D


     I decided on a CAS card right from the get-go so I printed the outline image onto White card stock, then colored the image with my ProMarkers.  I used two circle dies (QuicKuts) to cut the image into a doughnut shape leaving quite a bit of White to contrast with the background.  I found a scrap of plaid Christmas paper in my stash and used it for the background, layering the image on top.

     I added the "Merry Christmas" sentiment plus the ribbon bow and this CAS beauty was finished.

     Challenges:

     I hope your weekend is going well and that the weather is gentle wherever you are.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

You do beautiful coloring. I love the simplicity - letting the design speak for itself.

Your wreath card is beautiful NC, you've done a great job with the colouring. I particularly like the juicy red holly berries, they look lovely and shiny. The plaid background paper is wonderful too.
Cheers,
Beccy
