Christmas wreath

Well, it's Friday once again and let me tell you that summer HAS arrived here in New England!  So, maybe if I think about Christmas hard enough, it will make me feel a little bit cooler.  : )  Probably not, though.  This week at Christmas Stampin' All Year Round we have this gorgeous photo for our inspiration.

Aren't those colors so fresh and fun?!  Our sponsor is Di's Digi Designs and the prize is a $10 gift certificate to the shop!!  She's got some super cute images!

I took my inspiration from the colors in the picture.  Although, I used darker greens except the one splash of lime ribbon!  I just had to add it in!  Also, my wreath is in a circle just like the images on the cookies.  Can't wait to see how you interpret this challenge.  Hop on over to the CSAYL blog for all the details and to see the other projects from the DT.  One of them, I swear, put these cookies on her card!

Crimbo Crackers #44--You've had it how long (wreath image about 4 months, sentiment 2 years, paper 1 year, larger pearls just got 'em last week)
Jingle Belles--We wish you a digital Christmas (my image is digital, though the sentiment is stamped--hope that counts)
52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown #18--sequins and/or pearls
Christmas Card Challenge #30--inspiration photo (obviously, I was inspired by the wreaths)
Creative Inspiration #220--anything goes + the option of ribbon
Crafting by Designs--anything goes
Beat the Christmas Rush (June 25-July 24)--anything Christmas goes

Stamps: Robyn's Fetish "Beautiful wreath" digi; Verve "Ornamental Christmas" sentiment
Papers: DCWV Christmas pack for the dark green; don't know who made the other two
Spellbinders standard circles, large die

I wish I needed wintery thoughts to cool me down, sitting here in a fleece jacket... You sure found a number of ways to include pearls on your card - love the way you used the fishtail, too!
