lovely wreath

Don't ya just love this wreath??
its from Daisy Doodles, out of the 12 days of Christmas set!

I have used it this week for our challenge at DD the theme being FESTIVE COLOURS, and whats even better is that if you enter there is chance to win a $10 spend at the store!!!

The image I coloured using my sakura pens again, am getting a lot of use out of these lately, just love the shimmer on them.
I added gems just because I love sparkle and then added a mini bow over the one on the digi, that I am afraid is where I have struggled with this card, as I have tried all kinds of bows here, big and small, different types of ribbon, even had some jingle bells on there at one point, but have settled with this one!

then of course all I did was layer it and make into an easel card!
I added a mini calendar too as I think it turns a card into a little gift too!!

talking of easel cards - For those of you who did the blog hop, I will be sorting out a winner of the shaped easel blanks when I get home on Tuesday, so keep your fingers crossed!!

I also want to use this card for the challenges at....

MAWTT - someone special
stamp something - christmas colours
polka doodle - all about sentiment
the secret crafter - christmas
the crafty pad - anything goes
paper sundaes - gift it

soooo what are you waiting for??? off you go and take part in DD challenge!!!
