I am so pleased to be the guest designer for 52 Christmas Card Challenge Throwdown today.  Their challenge theme is the kissing technique - I remember this from way long ago, but can't be sure if I ever tried it.  Jennifer McGuire has an excellent "how-to" video though, so be sure to check it out for easy instructions.

I only had one suitable background stamp which was tiny polka dots so went with that and an open holly stamp - retired PTI stamp Spruce and Springs.  Then decided to use some non-traditional colors to make my wreath.  


I used two circle dies to make an open circle base for the leaves and arranged two layers.  Thought dark pinkish berries went nicely with the leaf colors.  Put it all together on the checked pp and little sentiment and done!

I hope to see your kissing cards in the gallery this week.  Thanks for stopping by.
