Freshly Made Sketches: Christmas Wreath

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Linda.

I'd love to be creative with this one - but how could I not do a wreath at this time of the year??!!  I have this new to my stash wreath die from Memory Box and sentiment from Right at Home.  I love this sentiment set - it's new to my stash and it will definitely be my go-to this year.

FMS Wreath

I think the little berries make this card!!  They are Little Things from Lucy's Cards Glossy Berry Mix Pearls.  They have a fabulous golden sheen!

I wanted a simple background but unique - so I used Taylored Expressions Brick by Brick Stencil but I taped off a number of them to give it this random look.  Once I had the stencil all taped up, I did a number of these backgrounds so you'll be seeing more of them.

I hope to see you playing along this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

Stamps: Right at Home Peace Love Joy
Dies: Memory Box Pine Wreath, Taylored Expressions Door to Door Summer Decor (the bow) and Stitched Rectangle Stacklets
Cardstock: Taylored Expressions Peapod and Granny Smith
Miscellaneous: Taylored Expressions Brick by Brick Stencil, Dreamweaver Embossing Paste, Little Things from Lucy's Cards Glossy Berry Mix Pearls, Versamark, Taylored Expressions Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder
