A joyous wreath

     Happy Thursday everyone!  Today I am sharing a card I made for a very sweet friend.  I can show it now because she has received it.
     I scooped this amazing stamp set up during the Black Friday sales.  It's from Power Poppy and is called Wreaths Plain and Fancy.
     I added Wink of Stella to the bow and berried and then covered the berries with some Glossy Accents.  The pine cone cluster was cut using Impression Obsession dies.  The front panel is raised up on foam.

This is gorgeous! I'm inspired to create one of my own...and to spend money on some new!

That was a little bit of an optical illusion there trying to decipher the 'front panel' but now I see it's the whole section with the circle cut out and that's fabulous looking. Those red berries really pop and I love the pinecone cluster!! A beautiful card and I'm certainly truly appreciated.
hugs to you H!

Oh, oh, OH.....I was wondering if you were going to get that set.....I knew you'd work your Copic magic on it, and you most certainly did! I am sure your friend will treasure this beauty, Tracy! So happy I saw this lovely today....hugs! :)

This is so elegant and beautiful, my friend! I love the round window cut out for that fabulous wreath, and love the plaid paper you used. Such a wonderful woodland feel!

Oh, sweet Tracy, this is indeed one gorgeous card, and I have to agree with Miss Katie that you worked Copic magic on this one. And I love the Wink of Stella and the Glossy Accents on the berries! It truly is so beautiful, and I love the plaid DP, ribbon, and the pinecones and pine boughs. So very gorgeous, precious friend! Hugs, and Christmas blessings to you and DH!

Oh WOW!! How on earth you managed to colour that wreath so perfectly and with so much dimension is a mystery to me ... It's magnificent!! Stunning card!

Gorgeous! Tracy it doesn't matter what stamp image you use, you always find a way to WOW me. Love the plaid paper and how you finished off this card. Just that bit of 'wink of stella' and the glossy accents really make the wreath come alive. Great finishing touches with the pine sprig and pine cones - gives it that 'rustic' feel. Fabulous card - another set I received early Dec, but had no time to play with it. Thanks again for sharing your talent! Hugs,
