And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Poinsettia Wreath

Hello friends!  I have a quick card to share with you that was made for two challenges... the Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoaststampers was to use a wreath on your card or project, and the sketch from the Shining the Light Challenge on the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog was used for the design.

Here's my card for both challenges:

Creative Nugget:  Nothing is as warm and inviting as a wreath on the door, and with Christmas just a few weeks away, I reached for this pretty Poinsettia Wreath just released by Our Daily Bread Designs this month.  The front of the card was made by stitching an Antique Border Die to some of the pretty papers from the Christmas Paper Collection 2013 and Cherry Cobbler card stock. This panel was mounted on a Vintage Cream card base and a gold pen was used to make a border around the card.  Both the wreath and the poinsettias were gold embossed on some of the other papers from the paper collection and cut with the matching Poinsettia Wreath Dies.  The head of the cardinal on the DP was slit to allow the wreath mounted on a Spellbinders Scalloped Circle Die to be tucked under.  The sentiment from the Gift of God set was gold embossed on vellum and a gold loopy bow was added to finish the card.

Here is the sketch that was used for the design:

And these are the supplies used that are available at the 

Thank you so much for stopping by...have a blessed Sunday!
