Winter White Wreath

Well, its another hot and humid day here in a Jemseg, NB.  Definitely a day you wish you had a pool.  It's too hot for everyone, even the puppy.  We had a bit of a health scare with the puppy this past week.  She got really sick Wednesday evening and a visit to the vet Thursday morning confirmed our worst fears.  She had Parvovirus.  She had to spend almost two days in the hospital.  There were lots of tears in our house that day.  However, she responded really well to treatment and was able to come home Thursday evening.  She's still on meds and not fully recovered but she's doing really well.  Thank goodness.  Hard to believe how much we became attached to her in five short days.  Glad she's on the mend.  :-)

Anyway, my card today was inspired by the lovely challenge picture over at a Festive Friday.  Take a look...


Isn't that lovely?  I decided to pull out the white and pretty pastel colours.  Here, take a look...



The wreath is by Penny Black and is new.  I stamped with versamark on kraft cardstock and embossed in white.  I added some pearls in pink, pale blue, purple and white.  I matted this on white and attached to my kraft card base with foam dots.  I stamped my sentiment (Stampabilities) in white but it didn't show up well so I went over it with my white gel pen.  Love how soft and pretty this turned out.  :-)

I think I'll link up to the following challenges as well:

The Paper Players - It's Tic Tac Toe this time.  I used any shade of pink, pearls, and embossing.
Christmas Card Challenges - Anything Goes

Well, hope you are all enjoying some nice weather wherever you are!  Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

    1. Hi Lynne. I got mine off of amazon.com but they don't seem to have it anymore and neither does PB. I've found one place that carries it. I'm sure their are others. Here's the link to where I found it: http://www.123stitch.com/item/Penny-Black-Adornment-Rubber-Stamps/PB-3996J
      Hope you're able to get it. It is a lovely stamp. :-). Thanks for visiting!
