Happy Monday friends! Time again for another Merry Monday challenge.
Karren chose our challenge this week.
I took my inspiration from the photo as well using the Wreath from the set Winter Wreath by Avery Elle. I stamped the woodgrain background stamp using Basic Gray ink on Smoky Slate cardstock. Embossed the wreath using white embossing powder and punched out the berries using a circle punch. I stamped and fussy cut the bow that comes with the set.
Make sure you pop on over to the Merry Monday challenge blog to see what gorgeous creations the other DT members have shared. Looking forward to seeing your creations in the gallery! Have fun!
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Smoky Slate
Ink: Basic Gray, Versamark, Real Red
Stamps: Winter Wreath (Avery Elle), Woodgrain Background stamp(SU)
Accessories: White embossing powder, circle punch
