Christmas Wreath

I'd seen this idea in many forms under Splitcoaststampers and wanted to try. The image is really a sprig of mistletoe from SU's Peaceful Wishes set (retired) which was stamped 5 times around a penciled in circle. I then erased the circle markings. I didn't have a red ribbon to go with the card so I used my Copic markers to colour in a cream ribbon. I tried to colour in the dots but the only medium dark enough and fine enough to do the job was my Copics and my paper isn't thick enough to not bleed through so I just left them. The card is 5 x 5 inches square.

This was another item that I tried for Lateblossom's One Layer Challenge this week to make a Christmas card with only red and green on a white base.

Other Challenges this card meets:
Christmas Card Challenge
7 Kids College Fund - Square Card
