Hello, Diane here with you today on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.
 
Today I have a fast and easy card to share with you, though it looks as
if you spent hours creating it!!  It took me about 30 minutes to create!


I first embossed my white card stock, then drew a light circle on so I would
have a starting point for my wreath.  I had a button jar sitting on my table,
 so I just traced the lid from that.
 
I used the Cheery Lynn Designs Wreath Strip to cut my twig branches.
I cut 6 strips, you get 3 large branches and 4 small, all from one Wreath Strip die cut.
 
Each twig branch has a little piece on the end to connect one to the other with a brad
if you want, but for this design, I snipped each off, it only took a couple of minutes to
do that.  I placed all the bigger branches on first, then filling in with the smaller ones.
To adhere the branches, I put some Art Adhesive glue on my mat and dipped the ends
only of the branches in it.
 
I know it does not show in the picture, but I "painted" Stickles here and there to give a
bit of  "sparkle" to the wreath.
I added a bow and left my wreath, as is, but you could decorate anyway "you" want
by adding Pearls or Rhinestones to change the look.

 
I am entering this in the challenge at City Crafters to "decorate" a wreath.
 
Hope you have enjoyed my quick project for today, and try one yourself.
See you soon!!

I totally love the wreath with those little specks of color in it. And against the embossed background with the gingham ribbon -- perfect!
