PP218 Merry Christmas

I decided to hit the gold again today!  This time using a wonderful idea by fellow Pal, Amy Whelan at

First, I used the pine cone stamp from Ornamental Pine.  I punched a 1 1/4" circle from a piece of post note so it would hold in place to make a center for my wreath.  I stamped the cone in Old Olive five times around leaving a little space between each.  I then came back around stamp this time in Encore gold ink. I lifted my circle off for a finished wreath. I added the 1/8" gold ribbon and then stamped in the same gold my sentiment and finished it off with some brushed gold card stock. I like how the gold here is not real shiny and but look festive. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed Friday!
