Joy......

Today's card is inspired by
the Challenge at CAS Christmas with the theme of Wreath....
I started by inking up the scribbly circle stamp with three shades of browns.
Next came the sprigs and the leaves with three different stamps 
and three different green inks.
 Finishing off with stamping the poinsettia in red and adding a small amount of bling.
The J and the Y have been die cut and edged with the green and browns.
It's one of those CAS cards that now I know the shades of inks 
and the stamps required that I could make up quite quickly but at the time
.....not so much x.
I so enjoyed making this card 
and grateful to the challenge to give me the kick start that I needed x.

Challenges I would love to enter.....

Amazing design Mac!! LOVE your gorgeous wreath. It's so delicate with the twig base and dainty leaves. Love the hit of red for the poinsettia. Adding the J and Y with shading on only one side creates a STUNNING effect. Absolutely LOVE this card. I would love to CASE ... I'll have to search and see if I have any stamps that would work. xx

What a fascinating and lovely way to use this pretty and delicate twiggy wreath. I love your idea of adding the golden letters to form the wonderful word! (Those look like the Altenew mega letter dies...and wish I'd thought of this great design!) TFS & Hugs

This is a stunning CAS wreath card, Mac! I love it! So clever and creative to use the scribble circle stamp with the other stamps to make a beautiful wreath! Edging the letters, J and Y, gives enough definition and still keeps the white-on-white die cuts clean. The dark red poinsettia is a pretty accent too. Thanks so much for sharing this beauty at CAS Christmas! Hideko xx
