Christmas with a Wreath Twist Challenge at Guylou's!

Happy Friday friends!!  It's challenge time over at Guylou's Inimitability and my amazing friend and teamie Kim has challenged us to start on those Christmas cards (if you haven't already!) but with one little twist.  Your creation must also include a wreath on it somewhere!  Easy peasy and so much fun!!

I decided to use one of the new Christmas images in the GI store called Roger and Leah -Christmas1.  It's just so perfect for our challenge this fortnight and I absolutely LOVE it:

I've been in quite the sparkly mood lately, so I inked up a snowflake I cut on my Cricut Expression in Colorbox Sky Blue Pigment Ink, embossed it, and then added some Diamond Stickles around the edges.  Leah's scarf, mittens, and hat were also glammed up with a little Diamond Stickles, too :)  And if that wasn't enough sparkle, lol, there is some XMas Red Stickles on the holly berries on the wreath but I guess that was a little too much sparkle for my cam to handle! ;)

Now on to the prizes!!  One lucky winner of our challenge will win a $10 gift certificate to Guylou's Inimitability online store AND a guest design spot in an upcoming challenge in the new year!

You have until 10:00 p.m. est on December 1st to play along!!  So come on by and show us those gorgeous Christmas-y wreath creations!!
