IT'S THE BERRIES

The theme of Merry Monday's challenge this week is berries and I wanted to do something a little different than just an ordinary wreath.


I started by watercoloring a large piece with various greens.  When dry, I cut out a bunch of stitched holly leaves in three sizes.  I embossed a circle on the card front and played around a bit with a few ideas.  Finally glued on the gold cord and just added a few holly leaves with gold sequins for the berries.  Die cut the joy sentiment and done.  The holly leaves are all sparkly with WOS.

Thanks for stopping by and always enjoy reading your comments.
