Viva La Verve Christmas Wishes!

Happy Saturday!  I have a Verve Christmas card to share with you today.  I am a bit behind with my Christmas cards for this time of year.   I am using the sketch from Viva La Verve Week 3 Moe is the host for this sketch.  Great sketch Moe.   I am using Verve's O Christmas Tree and Merry Wishes stamp sets.  I tried to keep this card sort of simple for easier mailing.  I layered some MME Christmas designer papers and colored the wreath with copics.  I had to add some colored glitter to make the wreath a bit more dimensional.  I used Verve's Tiny Sweet Scallop die set to add the sentiment and keep with the sketch double focal elements.  I finished with a seam binding bow, some olive Memory Thread curly ques, and a couple gold pearls.  I am also playing along with SCS Inspiration(IC307) Challenge. Here is my inspiration pic.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
