This month's challenge is entitled O Christmas Tree:
Ribbons and sparkle and merry galore! Create a card inspired by the decorations of the season!
I thought I'd challenge myself to make a single layer card. I hope I pulled it off, ha ha! When I was looking through my Verve stamps for this challenge, I was surprised to see I didn't have a single Christmas set. How in the world did that happen?! Time to get creative with the images I had. I grabbed the leaf images from Dream Big and created a wreath. I started by stamping the largest leaf image in Fuse Green ink around a circle I traced in pencil. Then I added the other leaves in darker shades of green, filling in the wreath. Using the little circle starburst images from Be Blessed, I added some little berries and added a little Glassy Accents to them to make them shine. The sentiment is part of the Framed Florals set.
