Merry Monday 123 - use a wreath

The challenge at Merry Monday this week is use a wreath

I have embossed red card with Funky Poinsettias embossing folder.  Printed The East Wind digi "Christmas Wreath with sleepy cats" onto oval.  Cut out and coloured with markers and layered onto red card.  Printed out second image, cut out flowers, coloured with markers and layered up onto top of flowers in the first stamp. Stamped Happy Christmas and punched out with scalloped oval and layered onto red card.  Layered all onto green card.

You can buy the lovely East Wind Stamps at
