festive wreath (Inkspirational, CASology)

How about a non-traditional card for the holidays?  Don't think I'd actually mass produce and send this one, but...

Found these little neon punched circles in my ironing board cleanup and decided to make them into a wreath. What goes with neon?  Not much.  Black. (Catch the hint of a front door?)  And gold, maybe.  Circles = polka dots, right?

Playing at:
Inkspirational - #42 Wreath
CASology - #68 Black (I'm stretching the definition of CAS with this one, I know)
Rudolph Day - October - Festive

I'm also sending this to Vera Y. for this year's Caring Hearts Card Drive.  Make cards and write notes in them.  They will be distributed to nursing home residents during the holiday season. Having had a grandma in a nursing home (back in the 70s), I feel the need to support this wonderful drive.  Check it out here.

Appreciate your visit.

Supplies happy holidays:
Paper: cardbase The Paper Studio, PP Fancy Pants
Stamps: WMS, sentiment Hero Arts
Ink:  Versamark 
Tools: circle punch, square die and embossing plate Sizzix
Other:  twine, gold embossing powder


  1. VERY striking card indeed. I think it's fab with all that gold embossing and black and neon.
