Freshly Made Sketches 250

It seems way too early to be thinking about Christmas but when my pre-order holiday catalogue box arrived, it seemed that I was destined to start working on Christmassy things. The sketch at Freshly Made Sketches lent itself to an idea that I wanted to explore using the beautiful background stamp, Merry Medley.

So, here it is.

With the abundance of sentiment already present, I opted to leave out the sentiment suggested in the sketch. The Christmas wreath was made by layering up some of the Swirly Scribbles dies, leaves from the same set and some feathery leaves from Botanical  Builders.

Simple, but cheerful and Christmassy.

Card: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, scraps of Gold Foil, Garden Green and Cucumber Crush
Stamps: Merry Medley
Inks: Cherry Cobbler
Other: Cherry Cobbler thick baker's twine, Enamel shapes
