Daydream Medallions Wreath

I've broken out another new stamp set, it's called Daydream Medallions and it's not a Christmas set but I've managed to use it to make a Christmas card.  I love when that happens, it makes me feel like I'm getting such good value out of my sets :)   I first embossed my card base with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder which is where the texture comes in.  I stamped the wreath in Lucky Limeade ink and then added the jewels.  They used to be clear but I coloured them with a red Sharpie.  I finished off the card with a very liberal spray of my homemade shimmer mist (made from Champagne Shimmer Paint and Isocol) which unfortunately doesn't show up in the photo but I can assure you it is super sparkly in real life!

I'm entering this card into 2 challenges and they are:  The Paper Players, I'm doing the Christmas, Sparkle/Bling, Ribbon Challenge across the top row (I think my twine qualifies as ribbon) and SUO Challenges which is to add texture.

Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White

Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Lucky Limeade
