A "Blingy" Wreath

It's a BLING thing over at Jingle Belles! We're challenged to create a card which incorporates bling, glitter, glitz, gems, shimmer, or anything sparkly. I decided to "bling-up" a wreath. First I cut a ring from cardstock and then I wrapped it in green ribbon. Next, I added berry red colored pearls and wrapped the wreath again with a metallic ribbon.  Using a Kraft cardbase, colored pencils and ink, I created a faux wood texture for the background. I rounded the corners of the cardbase and adhered it to a larger piece of green cardstock. To add a bit of texture, I poked holes around the green cardstock with a needle.  I attached a red bow to the wreath and wrote the sentiment with a marker on a scrap piece of Kraft cardstock. I inked around the edges of this before adhering it to the card. Because it's hard to write on Kraft cardstock, I adhered a white panel inside as a writing space. 

Supplies: Cardbase: Paper Studios?, Ink:Fiber Scraps: E-Z Walnut, Colored pencils: Crayola,Corner rounder: Creative Memories,  Ribbon: Offray, Marker: Bic Mark It, Green Cardstock: DCWV, Needle, Pearls: Queen & Co.
