Now, let's take a look at my project for Day 8!

I love the simplicity of this card!  A simple holiday wreath with holly berries and a red bow is a classic decoration, so using this on the front of a card with a short sentiment seemed perfect.  It did take me a little while to color in the wreath, which is the only detriment if you're wanting to use this on several cards.

Supplies Used
~Colored pencils from stash
~The {Stamps} of Life wreath4me (image) stamp set
~The {Stamps} of Life sentiment (Club Member Exclusive)
