Sparkly Christmas Snowflake Wreath

I am trying to finish up the last of my Christmas cards, so I'm joining multiple challenges to provide inspiration.   Here are the challenges:

Less is More: Colour plus Metallic
Addicted to Case: Snowflakes
CASology: Ribbon
Rose Blossom Garden:  Christmas using any CTMH Cricut Cartridge

I'm also using up lots of supplies I have lying around.  Here's the supply list:
  • Stamp: CTMH Oh Christmas Tree (retired)
  • Snowflakes:  Cut from CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (leftover from this project)
  • Ink:  CTMH Smokey Plum re-inker combined with Pearl Paint (leftover from this card); Colorit Platinum Pigment
  • Ribbon:  Um...maybe from Michaels.  It's a wired metallic I've had for way too many years.
  • OtherLiquid Glass (aka Glossy Accents), white sequins, white doily
I mounted the doily on cardstock then piled on the snowflakes and sequins.  I did a combination of spraying, flicking, and painting to get the variations of Smokey Plum shimmer on the wreath.  It's all from the same spray pen, though.  I promise.

Only about 15 cards left to go.  The only problem is, once I get them done, I'll have to go outside where the high today is expected to be in the teens.  Maybe I'll make my hubby do that part.

Until next time,
