Well, here it is, Monday already. Where did the weekend go.
My card today was inspired by a sketch from The Pixie Cottage Challenge Blog. The additional element needed for this challenge was to use recycled items. Well, I had lots of little punched out elements sitting in a baggie for ages. This challenge forced me to figure out how to use them in the sketch. It actually worked perfectly. They are the little green swirleys and the center strip. I also had a sheet of these little flowers printed and never use. The Flowers are from the Red Christmas Flower with Swirly Border from Fred She Said. I originally intended to use this entire set for this card, BUT, When the new Holly Wreath was released, I had to switch plans.
The Fred She Said Christmas Wreath comes in Digi format or pre-colored, all in the same set for the same price. How's that for value. Oh, I almost forgot about the three sentiments that are also included. Can you say, "Holy Cow"!
The papers, ribbon and pearls are from Close to my Heart.
The Hand Stitching is done with Matching Embroidery Floss.
