12 Tags of Christmas - Day Five

Welcome to Day Five!! And I have to confess that I am running behind, not only with my posting but with my creating. I've made it to Day 7 so today...I need to be crafting!! :-) I only have to confess that the Day Five technique is a tough one for me...I can never get it to work the way Tim does! So...my card is slightly different today with my words being in black instead of white but all the other elements are the same.
In general, this was an easy creation (with the exception of that darn inking technique that Tim does so well and I can't figure out!!). The words, from the Papillon stamp set (from Tim), were stamped on to a piece of plastic, which was cut out of some packaging..isn't that cool?! I then used a die (Fall Greenery from Tim) to cut out some leaves and believe it or not the little branches things are from a tree punch...I just cut off the trunks! I created the wreath with the "trees" and then filled in with the leaves. I then only had to add pearls and a white bow...fun, right?

Be sure to check back on December 15 for the Sweet 'n Sassy Cocoa Blog Hop...Prizes and lots of wonderful designs to share!!

And check back tomorrow for the Day Six tag!!!

Enjoy!

I love how you used the greenery to make the wreath.
