D2D Poinsettia Wreath

Here's my little bit of inspiration for the Designed2Delight freebie for this week. You still have a couple days to grab it for your self, so pop on by and get it! I had fun making a wreath for this image, okay not so much fun because the branches kept sticking to my gluey fingers, but I love the look! Here's a picture of the finished inside...
Pretty simple but using up some of the paper scraps!

Here's some other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - Christmas Cards
2. Alphabet Challenge Blog - F for Foliage
3. Challenge up your life - Advent/Christmas creations
4. Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog - sketch + Christmas theme
5. Creative Card Crew - anything goes
6. Double Delight Challenges - 2 Cardstocks, 2 Designer papers, 2 embellishments + D2D image
7. Easy Craft Projects - Challenges - Christmas
9. Speedy the Cat’s Friends Challenge - red & green card
10. Paper Cutz Challenge - Christmas & 2 patterned papers
11. Saturday Challenge - Christmas
12. Stamp Something - Christmas color combo
13. Stamps R Us - holiday card
14. Tuesday Taggers - deck the halls

Thanks for stopping by and aloha,

OMG! This is just beautiful! I think this artistic and 'loads of work' card deserves a frame, not only to preserve it, but to use it for your Christmas decor every year! I can't wait to see it IRL, which is only a week away! YEA! Love, SAM aka MOM

ps, I need a recipe for this, just how many branches did you punch?!?

Beautiful card. Love all those punched branches. Everytime I see a card using that punch like this I say I'm going to buy it. So far I havne't been able to find it when I have a coupon. I'll keep looking. Thanks for sharing your beautiful creation with us at Paper Cutz.
