September PTI Blog Hop - Wreaths

Papertrey Ink's September Blog Hop is all about wreaths. And, since I'm trying to get some Christmas cards done, this was a perfect chance! I used the die from "Birds and Blooms" as a base for the wreath, and then cut out some extra branches, which I cut apart and glued on. I also die cut one of the birds and some red flowers from the same set.  Then I die cut quite a few holly leaves from dark green cardstock, and decorated the wreath with some red rhinestones. The sentiment is from "Think Big Favourites #20, stamped in Dark Chocolate ink, and the star background stamp is from Waltzingmouse Stamps, stamped in Fine Linen ink. The bow is from "Bells and Boughs".

All materials are PTI, unless otherwise stated.
Thanks so much for looking--have a great day!
