52CCT - Technique ....

... Hello!  I've been having fun in my craft room this week - love my new tower unit, it is so much easier to find my stamps and papers now.  It's time for our technique challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and Julie wants us to make "Shaped Cards" - no squares or rectangles, but you can go mad for any other shape!  Here's my card:

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Wonderous Wreath
Inks: SU - Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Spellbinders - Circles Lg (S4-114) #7, Petit Scalloped Circles Lg (S4-115) #6; SU/Sizzix - Wonderful Wreath Framelits
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Grey, Poppy Parade; Sequins; Wink of Stella - Clear

The colours are from this week's Colour Q challenge - cQc#304 and I've taken inspiration from the graphic photo too - love the hose wreath!!!  I used my circle dies to cut out the circles and also to cut a circle card from one of my A2 card blanks.  I adhered the red and grey circles on the white card.  I stamped the wreath on white card.  This is a three-step wreath - I stamped the full set of leaves after stamping off once, then the next set of leaves were added using full strength colour.  I finished the wreath with some yellow berries.  I cut it out with the matching dies and adhered it flat to the card.  I cut the sentiment from red card, added some sparkle all over with a clear Wink of Stella brush and attached it to the card.  I finished the front with some sequins.  On the inside I simply stamped another wreath and added a greeting.
