CAS Christmas Wreaths

The sketch over at Clean & Simple Stamping caught my eye recently so I used it as the basis for another Christmas card:

The wreath stamp by Penny Black was free with a magazine & I stamped it in Memento Cottage Ivy & Bamboo Leaves. Then I picked out some of the "leaves" in red Copic marker to make them look like berries and used a Quickie glue pen to pick out a few more, sprinkling on some Crystal Glamour Dust.

This was the original sketch:

It took me ages to work out what to do for the sentiment until eventually I looked through my stamps and found a tag stamp which I've had for ages but can't remember who it's by. I stamped it in Bamboo Leaves & used Wink of Stella over the top to add a little more glitz which you can see in the photo below:

I'm also going to enter this into this week's challenge over at Less is More where the theme is Jingle all the Way!, i.e. anything Christmassy.

And lastly, I can't resist showing a photo I took this afternoon over at Formby Point, where the red squirrels at long last seem to be increasing in numbers after a bout of squirrel pox:
