MC Oct/13 - Pine Sprig Wreath - Peace On Earth

This is the 3rd of the eight cards created yesterday... I just got this new die "Pine Sprig" set from Memory Box and really wanted to make a wreath with it...

Side folded my white card to 5.5"w x 4.25"h. and embossed it with a Cuttlebug Xmas word embossing folder. Lightly sponged over the high points with a dirty red sponge.

Cut a circle with a Spellbinder's circle die, stamped my sentiment with Versafine "Black Onyx.", clear embossed and adhered to card front.

Colored some white cardstock with various greens and die cut a lot of pine springs... then started gluing the larger ones around the circle, then some smaller ones here and there. I only glued the stens of each so they stood out a bit. Added the large red rhinestones and then tied a bow with 3 colors of thick thread.

I'm pleased...
