Christmas Wreath

Today was finally a day that I spent creating something just for fun. I wanted to try something new and that is precisely what I did with this card.

One of the new techniques was the sunburst technique which was the challenge for ISpySketches. This took a lot more time then I thought it would but I think it was worth it for this unique use of scraps of Christmas Paper. Talk about paper piecing! I also saw this week's challenge on JUGS, which was to make a ribbon Christmas Wreath. It was fun and I think it turned out cute. I used a sentiment from GKD and fulfilled the challenge on WAW. So that was my day today and I made another Christmas card too!

Miesje - This is beautiful!! That wreath is perfect! The whole things looks so lovely. Looks like you had a wonderful time crafting!

Hi Miesje: Two things. First, this card is BEAUTIFUL - your art is always a blessing to me. I really hope that you will kindly consider linking it up at Word Art Wednesday. We need and appreciate your participation, and hope to see you share it there if you can.

Second, I REALLY need to speak with you privately. Can you please email me. I can't even figure out your email address through the Yahoo Group for Daydream Designs. Mine is listed in the Daydream Designs group, or on Word Art Wednesday. I definitely need to talk with you ASAP.

Thanks so much for both,
karen letchworth

Miesje, I saw that particular sunburst pattern on youtube some while back but have never tried it. That ribbon wreathe nestled under the sunburst is truly one of the nicest things I have seen. The card is true work of art. Thank you for sharing with us.
