Let's be merry

Good morning! Here is my take on this weeks Fusion challenge. I was inspired by the silver tinsel and red in the photo and followed the sketch.

First of all, I saved this bag from Nordstrom's because I liked the silver shine to it and thought I'd recycle it. It came in handy for making the silver wreath. I used the fir dies from Poppy stamps to cut out enough to glue around a circle that I had drawn in pencil on the cardstock.

Red satin bow is tied using the Bow Easy and adhered onto the wreath using a glue dot. The red berries are plastic pony beads that I melted in the oven to create my own candy dots. There are several video's tutorials on this on You Tube. Now I have a plethora of different colored dots to play around with!

Cut out a banner using the smallest fishtail die from MFT and stamped the sentiment from Technique Tuesday in Wild Cherry pigment ink.

Card base is a pure poppy piece of cardstock from PTI.
ETA: also adding this into Less is More week 199 challenge of Jingle all the way/Christmassy. 

That's it for now! Thanks for stopping by!
