Merry Christmas for Merry Monday #123 & JUGS #256

Good morning my blogging friends.  Today I combined two challenges for my card - Merry Monday Christmas Challenge (use a wreath on your card) and Marisa's challenge on JUGS Wild Card Week (anything other than a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 card).  

I made a center step card and made it a Christmas card with a wreath.
My card base is SU Whisper White and the mats are Real Red CS.  The DSP is from the Lawn Fawn Peace, Love & Joy 6x6 pad.  The sentiment and wreath are from Verve's O Christmas Tree set.  I stamped both in Mememto Tuxedo Black ink and colored the wreath with Promarkers and cut it out.  I paper-pieced the bow with Real Red CS and added gold rhinestones to the centers of the poinsettias.  I then mounted it with foam dimensionals and added the two green buttons tied with white Baker's Twine.  The die-cut flourish is from MFT's Formal Flourish

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
