1 Down and 99 To Go!--OLW


Thanks to Susan's One Layer Wednesday challenge this week HERE, I'm now one card ahead for next Christmas!

This one was super easy. I first stamped the wreath base using the SU set "Sketch It" and a light green ink. The five "poinsettia" blossoms are from another SU set "Growing Green," which I just acquired last week. After stamping them in warm red ink, I used a dark red marker to color them in. I added white lines radiating from the center and used a tiny pearl for each. The pine needles were stamped in dark green using a Rubber Stamp Tapestry peg stamp. The greeting is from the SU set "Sincere Salutations", one of the few Christmas greetings available to me without having to uproot the Christmas storage drawer.

After rounding off the top right corner, the card was done!
