Rustic Wreath

Hello everyone! It's Diana today.

One of my favorite Christmas decorations are Christmas wreaths. There's just something about them.  I love them on cards too. Today I'm sharing a card I made making a grapevine wreath against bricked background.

To make the brick background, I sponged some Wild Honey distress spray, on the edges and corners of my embossing folder. It's a great way to get ink into the de-bossed area to give textured cards more dimension.

To make my wreath, I first die-cut the grapevine wreath from Cottage Cutz in brown. *You could substitute the Memory Box Grapevine Wreath instead.*

 I had made the three poppies and their leaves from Poppy Stamps Small Blooming Poinsettia.  After laying them on the wreath, it was a little bare, so I added some sprigs from Impression Obsession Pine Branch.

For some shimmer on my card, I added Aztec Gold Glitter to the center of my blooms, as well as brushing each petal with my Wink of Stella Glitter Pen.

I hope you like my card and will play along in this week's Classy Cards 'n Such Christmas Blooms challenge.
