Merry Monday Challenge Week #123

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a fun weekend!
We spent Saturday night with our dear friends and ex-neighbors from Wrightsville. They came over for supper and watched the NASCAR race while flipping the channel back & forth to the Baltimore Ravens preseason game. We intended to have a firepit that night but since it rained all day Saturday, that plan went out the window. We had really good time hanging out with them again. It's been way tooo long!

Anyways, since it's Monday that means it's time for a new challenge from over at Merry Monday! Bonnie is our fantastic hostess this week and she is asking for wreaths on our cards. So let's get to it!

I just loved Bonnie's inspiration picture! I really wish I had a wreath as beautiful as that one but instead I have one almost as cute. This wreath is from a retired SU set called Welcome Christmas, which I thought was perfect for the challenge! I embossed my wreath in Winter White EP onto Rich Razzleberry cardstock so the image would pop off the page. I added some small rhinestone to the wreath image to give it some sparkle. I also added a Razzleberry bow. My card is very simple but also very mail friendly once it's time to address my envelope and mail it out! :)

Hope you will stop by the Merry Monday blog to see what the other ladies have created this week. Soooo many beautiful wreaths!
