This is my second card for the "Sparkle & Shine" Lawnscaping challenge. I did a similar card for last Christmas, inspired by one by Kristina Werner.
I used the "Deck the Halls" mini stamp set by Lawn Fawn. After die cutting a circle using one of Lifestyle Crafts' "Nesting Scallops," I stamped the greenery & pine cones to create a wreath. (The inks I used were Hero Arts Cup o' Joe, Forever Green, & Soft Leaf; Stampabilities' Christmas Green pigment ink; and Chestnut Roan chalk ink by Colorbox.) Once I had the wreath looking full enough, I glued the panel to a piece of patterned paper from my scrap stash.
I stamped the "Jolly Holly Days" from the same stamp set on a scrap of white cardstock, in Versamark ink. I heat embossed that with Ranger Gold embossing powder, and cut it into a strip. I then adhered it to my card front, below the focal panel. Then I mounted my card front to a white A2 card base.

I'm also entering this card in Simon Says Stamp's Monday "Anything Goes" challenge.
