Merry and Festive

My card today combines two challenges. 
The Merry Monday and Festive Friday Christmas Challenges.


The challenge at Festive Friday is an inspirational photo. I was inspired by the 
wreath which fit perfectly with the Merry Monday challenge to use pinecones & 
greens with a plaid ribbon.
I don't have any plaid ribbon so I used some plaid dsp and made a paper ribbon.


all from Stampin' Up unless noted
card stock: crumb cake, old olive, whisper white
dsp: season of style
stamp set: winter wreath (avery elle)
ink: always artichoke, old olive, wild wasabi, soft suede
big shot: woodgrain EF, needlepoint border EF

Happy Stampin'
