Sketch Saturday - Sketch #286

Welcome back to Sketch Saturday for another great sketch to try your hand at this week. Bugaboo Stamps is our sponsor.

This sweet rustic wreath is a stamp and matching die from Papertrey Ink.  I spent some time puttering around lining the stamp up with the die, wishing I had paid attention a little more in my geometry class!  I used the die to cut the wreath out of the card front, and then attached a colored die cut wreath to the inside of the card.  Eventually things came together, but it took me the better part of a night!

Red Stickles decorate the berries and red rhinestone are attached to the glitter paper snowflakes.
