"Wreath Card"

Hello friends, what a beautiful day it has been here in rural Perthshire.  I hope it has been the same where you are, it makes such a big difference.  Very, very frosty early this morning, the sun got up that cleared the frost then there was a heat in the sun.  Washing all out and dried, just needs ironed. 

Thank you for stopping in my little corner of Blogland gad to have your company.  I love when you leave a comment.  That way I know who called and I came pop to your Blog if you have one to see what you are doing.

Went along to Elaine`s, got some of my things in the cabinet, looks quite good.   I had only one of the busts we use to display our pendants, Hazel (my sister) has the others.   I will get them on Wednesday when I meet her,  once in the cabinet that will be it.  I forgot my camera but I will try to remember to take it next time.

My card today is using up a pleated ribbon wreath.  I made a few for Christmas cards, this is one that was left .   I found it in a box when looking for something totally different!!

Base card 6 x 6
Pink Cordinations card
Piece of the Rose card I had left from my Heart Card which I stitched round
Spellbinder Stately Circles to cut pink card pierced round the edge
Smaller size of circle Die to cut a scrap of the Rose is double sided and this is the back 
Smallest Die to cut pink card
Placed an embellishment from my box in the centre

That`s it for today, thank you for popping in I really appreciated it
