Red and green wreath

I'm not getting on very well with my Christmas cards for one reason or another. So I bought a new stamp set - that always gives a bit of inspiration. 

Then I noticed that  they have a colour challenge at Merry Monday so here is my offering:

I've failed to get a good picture in daylight or by lamplight. The mist has now descended outside (yes it is August) and it reminds me of Brigadoon. 'What??' say my family. They are way too young. Anyway the light is not good. 
The background colour here is apple green. It's a Woodware stamp, which many people will be familiar with - embossed in light green and then coloured in light and dark green and red. Finished off with glossy accents on some of the circles. 
I tried to make a smaller card. I have some 13x13 envelopes so I thought it would be good to make cards to fit. But I really couldn't get it to work. I seem to need those two centimetres.  I suppose something very simple would work, I'll have another go. 
Expect to see much more of this stamp set over the next months. 
I'm also popping into Pixie's Snippets Playground although I may not find my way if it's misty there too. Really it looks like November outside!
I've used snippets of card, ribbon and silver thread. 


  1. What a pretty wreath, Alison! I love those shiny balls! Thanks for finding your way through the mist to share with us at Merry Monday!
