Sparkling Wreath.....

Hello everyone: I have another card to share with you today but this time I'm linking it to the Addicted to CAS SPARKLE challenge and to the LiveLoveCards October challenge "White Space". Here is my card.
This is an old Flourishes stamp set called "A Wreath for all Seasons", it has 3 other images for Spring, Summer and Fall, very pretty, I stamped it onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink.
Since the Addicted to CAS challenge called for sparkle on your card I decided to add a few, colorful Rhine Stones and leave the rest of the image white and just add a couple of layers of Dazzling Diamonds from SU, which turned out to be just what this image needed to shine but still be CAS.
The "Merry" sentiment is part of a die set that I have had for many years but I made the mistake of not saving the label so I can't remember were it's from. I die cut it with some glimmer paper.
Here is the Cue card that inspired mine.
I hope you like this card, let me know if you have any questions. Thank you so much for visiting and for your comments.
Till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

LOVE the rainbow of bling on your sparkly wreath. Really beautiful. Thanks for playing along at ATCAS.

Hi Sonny: I was debating between coloring the wreath or just leaving it white and just put the Rhine Stones, I'm glad I decided to do this instead.
I will make a few cards with the other images, all just as pretty.

Well, I do decorate for the Holidays starting with Halloween, I do plan to make cards with the other images.
Thank you for stopping by.

You are most welcome, cm. I love that little spooky scene you created with this SU Holiday Home set, to bad they retired it but I grabbed as soon as I saw it.
Thank you for your sweet thoughts on all of those other cards.
Happy Thanksgiving to you!!

Beautiful Maria! I love the simplicity yet the sparkle adds a lot of pizzazz!

Mary Fish said...

Such a simple design but the wreath has so much WOW!

Maria A. said...

Thank you Darlene, I opted for leaving most of the ornaments white and just added some Rhine Stones and glitter, I was going to color each ornament but I think like this looks better.
