Wreath from Down Under

Hello and a big Happy Monday to you, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. All has returned to peace and tranquility now as my lovely Grandsons and Son have gone back to London.  We had a lovely time on Saturday at the lunch and party for my Daughter's fortieth birthday.  I am off to the Trafford Centre today with my daughter to do some Christmas shopping.

Today I have a card I made with one of Beccy's fab new designs for Christmas.  It is using the Aussie Wreath Set and I must admit to using a bit of poetic license for the colouring as I wasn't too sure on what colours the flowers would be.


The image comes in a set which is available at Beccy's here.  I coloured it with my Copics and then cut it out with a SB Circle die.  Behind the image I used Snowflake Wreath from Joycrafts.  The papers are quite old - HOTP.  The border is La La Land Lattice border and I used Viva Decor Pearls on the image, snowflake wreath and lattice border. The sentiment is Clearly Besotted.


Thank you so much for looking today and I hope you have a wonderful week!
