Stamp Review Crew - Wondrous Wreath Edition

It's Stamp Review Crew Time once again (and, I'm sad to say, I missed out on the last one because **GASP** I DIDN'T OWN THE SET THEY WERE USING!!! Hard to believe, right??)!! This group is SO creative!!! This week we are playing with the "Wondrous Wreath" set ... and since Christmas is OVER, I can't WAIT to see what everyone has done!!

I spent a LOT of time perusing the Pinterest and Google boards looking to see what HAD already been done with this set (and, lemme tell ya ... there have been SO MANY wonderful and creative things made since this set came out last fall!)! However ... the one thing I was looking for that I did NOT see is what I made ... an "over-the-hill" card with a sorta "funeral-lookin'" wreath on it. Kinda hard to tell because of the lighting (and because I wanted all the silver "berries" to show up), but this wreath is BLACKBLACKBLACK ... and I'm giving it to my brother in law who is turning 50 in a couple of weeks ... and I'm SURE the "over-the-hill" jokes will be comin' RIGHT BACK AT ME since I'm not that far behind him with the big 5-0!

Stamps: Wondrous Wreath, Alphabet Rotary Stamp
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer DSP
Ink: Black Memento, Versamark
Accessories: Ticket Duo Builder Punch, White Jute Ribbon, Silver Embossing Power, Silver 1/8" Ribbon, 1 3/8" Ticket Punch, Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies, Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder






See all the lovely images that come with this set??? (and you can REALLY stretch this to SO much more than Christmas!)
