Textured Mini Wreath - Daring Cardmakers Elemental Challenge

Happy December!

The beginning of a month means an elemental challenge over on the Daring Cardmakers.  Basically, you choose 3 elements from the picture you can find here.

From the picture, I opted to use the colours, snowflakes and a wreath.  I used a die for the wreath base and then threaded ribbon through it to add texture. I added die cut snowflakes in 2 different sizes and finished off with black and clear gems to add that extra sparkle. I mounted the wreath on a snowflake embossed piece of card and used a die cut sentiment which I put on so it bowed outwards.

Once I'd made the wreath I actually found it a challenge as to how to use it on the card. I tried a number of variations but settled on this one in the end!

Thank you for taking the time to read my posts and your comments are much appreciated.
