Wreath Christmas Card

Hello my crafty friends
I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe travels this Thanksgiving.  I'm thankful that I am on two design teams.  It's the only way I've been able to get my Holiday cards done early. LOL.  So without further ado here is another Holiday card for you. The image is from Annes Cards4u and they are the sponsor for this weeks challenge at Pinspirational Challenges.  Be sure to stop by and join the challenge and a chance to win some fabulous images and for more inspiration from the design team.  I used the Darice Snowflake embossing folder for the base card and layered with paper from Recollection Seasonal Paper pack. I cut the image with Spellbinder's scallop nesting dies and added pop dots to lift it. Of course I used my Spectrum Noir markers. LOL I also used Stickles Diamonds to add some sparkle on the bow and center of the poinsettia. On the jingle bells I used a gold glitter gel pen. I used the following Spectrum Noir markers: CR11,DR5,CR6,EB1,TN1,7,DG2,3,GB8,11. For the sentiment I used a program called Scrapbook Max 2 It is a user friendly scrapbook program that let's you use clipart that you either buy online or find for free.  They have scrapbook kits that you can purchase and also a blog you can join and share clipart others have made.  I'm happy with the way this card turned out. It has a real Holiday feeling to it. I can't seem to get the sparkle to show up in the picture as well as it looks in person. I need to work on that some more.   Stay tuned if you want to see what the inside will look like. At this time I haven't made up my mind which sentiment I will use. I also have a few more  cards coming your way soon. Thanks for stopping by today and thanks for your comments.
