Christmas Chickadee Wreath

Julie Warner -

For today’s Free For All Challenge (F4A145), we are to use fruits or veggies or colors of fruits or veggies. So ok, this may be stretching things a tad, but pine cones are fruits and so are the holly berries. Or I guess I could go w/ the colors rhubarb and celery. Anyway, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it because I really need to make some more Christmas cards.

The images are all from Our Daily Bread designs and are a mix of new and older and I pretty much gold embossed everything except the background. The chickadee image is from the new Chickadee Ornament and since I wanted to put it on my wreath, I fussy cut it out. The Apple Wreath (minus the apples) was embossed on a die cut circle.  The pine cones (from Sing for Joy), were also embossed and fussy cut. I attached my wreath on top of a Wood Background I stamped w/ the sand ink. The greeting (from Christmas Flourished Verses) was die cut w/ a tag die.  A bow and some designer paper finished my 4.25 x 5.50 card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
