Gumball Wreath, CRD270 & DS128

Greetings! I hope you all enjoyed a very nice Thanksgiving yesterday. I had a houseful, and still do! Today I will start decorating for Christmas, as well as make a few of my famous Turkey Pot Pies. For those of you that are in the mood to shop, don't forget that Stampin' Up is having a holiday sale!

I decided that my Wonderful Wreath stamp hasn't seen quite enough action so I thought I would take it out to play today and create this card for two challenges.

I love this awesome color combo from Color Throwdown for a holiday card! I had to play along!

I knew I wanted to use a bird on my wreath, and went in search of a sketch that would work. The Deconstructed Sketch was absolutely perfect!

I added lots of shine and sparkly embellishments to this card. The greeting was heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. The base of the bird is Silver Foil. A Silver Glimmer Brad and Glimmer Paper add sparkle, and there's even a snippet of Silver Ribbon.
