It's day THREE for Taylored Expressions peeks and I've got another fabulous seasonal wreath for you this morning.  Wreaths of Joy is a mini set of 13 images (4 images + 9 sentiments) and is illustrated by the talented Nancy McKinney.

I started by stamping the wreath in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copics and then cut it out with the Seasonal Wreath Die.  The papers are from the 12 Days Project Pantry Kit and I added some rhinestones to add some sparkle.  The layout is the newest Got Sketch card challenge.

Here are the dies I used today:

The rest of the Baker's Dozen have lots more for you today, so stop on by and see:
