Rustic Christmas Wreath

Hi! I hope you've had a good weekend! I'm back with another Christmas card - properly in the flow now! ;-) It's using this weeks Case this Sketch, Festive Fridays photo challenge and the Pals Paper Arts colour challenge. I made the wreath by cutting a few different sized poinsettias in a mix of greens then cutting them apart and glueing them in a wreath shape. I used gold Wink of Stella on the bow but it only shows up in a photo when turned at a weird angle into the sun! Thanks for looking, I hope you like it :-)






Supplies;
Card stock - Stampin' Up 'Naturals white', 'Cajun Craze', 'Always Artichoke', 'Garden Green' & 'Pear Pizzazz'
Paper - My Minds Eye 
Dies - Spellbinders 'Poinsettias' & Taylored Expressions 'Basic Bow'
Other - Wink of Stella 'Gold' & pearls
