Wreath for All Seasons


I have another card with more snowflakes!!    It must be all the winter weather  we've been having lately. Seems like all my cards  this week have some snowy details.

I used Papertrey Ink's Wreath for All Seasons and added some snowflakes and glitter to the wreath and background paper for a unique winter look. This set is so versatile - it can be used for so many different occasions.

Here's the birthday card for my niece. She lives about 4 hours away from me so I wanted to make this card and get it into the mail this week - her birthday is at the end of November.
  I stamped the berries on the wreath in two tones of lavender/purple and added glitter to the background paper with embossing powder and glamour dust. The photo doesn't seem to show all the glitz, but it is very sparkly IRL!

Card Details:
Stamps: PTI Wreath for All Seasons, Vintage Picnic Sentiments
Inks: Close to My Heart Chocolate, Lilac Mist; Stampin'Up Lovely Lilac; Versamark.
Paper: Brazzill  "Love Potion" ; Creative Imaginations "Snowflake".
Other Supplies: Stampin'Up Iridescent Ice Embossing powder; DecoArt Glamour Dust; SU punches; white mini pearls; Nestabilities Inverted Scallops;  

Have a great day. Thanks for visiting!

Nooo.... stop making me need this set!!! Look at how great that fits in the nestie shape, and I just LOVE the idea to use two tones for the berries.
