Winter Wreath-Nettie G's Challenge

Hi Everyone,  Merry Christmas Eve.  I hope you all are ready for Christmas.  Can you believe it is here.  Jacob is excited about Santa coming.  I don't know who's more excited him or Donna.  She's just a big kid when it comes to Christmas. 

This card is the next phase of Nettie G's progressive challenge.  If you competed in the last phase, you will be sent this digital image to enter this phase.  You can go to Nettie G's Challenge Blog to see what the design team came up with.

For my card, I colored the wreath blue.  I cut snowflakes from glitter paper using the Lacy Labels cartridge.  I added them to the wreath along with some stars and blue bling.  The digi has a bow at the bottom of the wreath which I colored silver.  However, I decided a real bow would add more to the card.  Notice the stickles  added to the window to make it look like it had ice on it.  I cut the window frame from Christmas cartridge.  It has a curved bottom on it but I cut it off so as to have a straight bottom on my window.  I cut two of these and layered them with adhesive strips to give it depth.  The background paper is KandCo. Blue Awning.  I wanted the background to look like wallpaper. 

I didn't choose traditional Christmas colors because I thought this is a wreath you could leave hanging through out the winter months.  January and February both have lots of snow. 

Thank you very much for visiting us on Christmas Eve.  I hope you all have a Blessed Merry Christmas.  Remember the true meaning of Christmas.  God Bless You!!!!!! Peggy
