Noel

I love the new PTI set, A Wreath for All Seasons, but couldn't afford to buy it...and seeing all the beautiful examples reminded me that I had a pretty wreath in a different set, 2009 Holiday Tags.

Noel wreath mini

The background, from the Waltzingmouse set Faux Fun, is stamped and heat embossed with clear detail EP onto Scarlet Jewel cardstock. The focal image was cut with the Mat Stack 1 die, and I added gems to the wreath. The sentiment also comes from 2009 Holiday Tags, and I sprayed the whole card with gold glimmer mist from Tattered Angels.

Thanks for coming by!

What a gem of a card, Melissa! I love it when you find inky love with an older set - your wreath looks fabulous! I love the added glimmer too *wink*

Wow Melissa, you have created such a stunning and elegant card here. Love everything about it! I couldn't afford a PTI order this month either, but I have plenty of older stuff to keep me busy:) Glad you remembered this wreath.
