Hero Arts Scramble #97!

Hello!  It's my turn to host the Hero Arts Flickr group's 90-minute scramble today, and I've chosen WREATHS as my theme.

You must create, photograph, and upload a project that uses at least 1 Hero Arts product and follows my theme to the Flickr group in 90 minutes.  Here are my sample cards that I made for today:

Scramble97 #1

This is a Hero Arts wreath stamp called Pinecone Wreath.  I simply stamped it, colored it with markers, and embellished it with a lacy trim, a cluster of little jingle bells, and some pearl "berries.  The sentiment is also Hero Arts, from their Miracle of the Holidays, one of my favorites for Christmas!

Scramble97 #2

Next up, I used small elements from lots of clear stamp sets and several purple inks and made my own little floral wreath, embellishing it with purple Hero Arts gems.  The sentiment is part of one from their Find Joy set, and the die-cut is part of Simon's Happy Birthday die.

And lastly, I made a doily into a lacy wreath:

Scramble97#3

This uses the lovely Circle Doily, embossed in white on Carnation layering paper, and embellished with a dyed seam-binding bow and some Martha Stewart Hydrangea stickers.  The sentiment is again from their Find Joy set.  I made the doily into a lacy wreath by covering up its center with a die-cut circle.

Thanks for stopping by today! You can see some other wreath cards HERE as they are made and uploaded to our Flickr Hero Arts group.

ETA: I'm adding the first and last cards to the A2Z Scrapbooking November challenge, Anything Goes.
