Festive Friday #20 - Wreath

My card for Festive Friday which you can access Here
I cut out the circle with my old Creative memories circle and then used the tiny leaf on the bottom of the card and went around the circle.  I love how this turned out.  I had a little space left over so decided it needed a bow.  Also added some red Stickles for a little color.   At first the wreath was by itself but I felt it needed just a little something else, so I tried putting some red twine on the side and didn't like that, then decided to try the three little branches at the bottom.  I was happy with that, thank goodness, cause I didn't want to have to start over.
PTI's Tag It's #9, Bells and Boughs and Sentiment from Happiest of Holidays, in Pure Poppy and Simply Chartreuse.
