CCMC176 and Bright Hopes

Greetings, Stampers! The Create with Connie and Mary design team have a sketch challenge this week and I had to play along.

This is such a great layout to showcase the different patterns in the pretty Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Paper. It is also a great layout to use up little scraps, which is a good thing, because that is about all I have left!

The wreath was heat embossed with Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder. It has a pretty shine that unfortunately doesn't show up well in the photos. The background paper was stamped with Wild Wasabi Ink that was stamped off once for more subtle color.
