Wondrous wreath ~ take 3

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments, it's an honor to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you! Today I'm sharing the third and for now final card I created last week with the Wondrous Wreath stamp and die bundle from Stampin' Up! If you missed the other two cards, you can see them HERE. I love all of them and would love to know which is your favorite. Will you let me know in the comments?

This time I used a blend of modern and traditional colors. The wreath itself is stamped in Coastal Cabana and Lost Lagoon inks and I used Strawberry Slush for the blow and flowers. The card base is once again Crumb Cake and I used the same color ink for the flowers and sentiment. I LOVE how Stampin' Up! make it so easy for us by providing each color in ink, card, markers, embellishments and more! Everything I've used is available 24/7 in My shop.

You might recall that I mentioned on Friday that I was headed out to the coast on Saturday. I had a really relaxing time, but the water itself proved somewhat elusive as you'll see, or rather not see in the pic below...

The tide was out and on this stretch of coastline when it's out, it's WAY out! My guess is that it was at least three miles out at this point, possibly more! I did get to see the shoreline, but that wasn't until hours later and indeed on a different beach! Just as I had to wait, you will too, sorry! I'll share that pic with you tomorrow, so please do stop by then.

Hello Em

A wonderful Christmas card, yes I too love the wreath and your modern/traditional touch.
Oh my goodness 3miles to the shoreline. I bet it was fabulous when you reached it. I too live
beside the sea. Looking forward to your next picture.
