Merry Christmas for Merry Monday #72

This is my card for the Merry Monday #72 challenge.  I flipped the sketch so my wreath would be at the top.  My card base is SU Garden Green CS. I used the Tim Holtz brick embossing folder on my white cardstock so it would look like a brick wall.  I stamped the wreath from Verve's O Christmas Tree set in Mememto Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Card and colored it with Copics, cut it out and mounted it with foam dimensionals on a 2" circle, punched from a piece of DCWV graph paper,  I stamped the bow on a piece of scrap paper, cut it out, added a little shading with a marker and mounted it with foam dimensionals also. I added some gold pearls from Michael's to the center of the poinsettias.  The sentiment is from the same set.  The Paver Red Grosgrain ribbon is from My Favorite Things and I added some SU White Baker's Twine around it.  That's it for my card.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate your comments.

Happy Stamping,
