Holiday Cheer! / ESS Sketch #63

With exactly two weeks left to Christmas Eve,  I am continueing to make xmas cards with the hope of being done in time.  It is the season of HOPE.  And there is something about holiday wreaths that bring on a "holiday cheer" :)

It also has been a few weeks since I've been able to participate in ESS Sketches brought to us by the talented Tracy Clemente! I have serious withdrawels and miss my ESS Sketch buddies.  I had to play this week and thought that I could the wreath idea with this sketch.

Here is what i came up with for this challenge:

This week ESS Sketch #63, Tracy Clemente creatively intruced a FUN shape flag for the sentiment! Caught my eye immediately. 

I made the card a more rectangular shape in order to use the Martha Stewart edge punch whose look I really like!  I also took the rectangular accent and added my wreath which I cut using Cricut Joys of the Season cartridge.  I added rinestones to decorate it.  I added a tree shape brad on the FUN shape flag to match the pp I used.

The sentiment is from HeroArts Laughter & Merriment,  and it was perfect for this card. 

This was a NICE quick card that came together nicely and I enjoyed making it.
