Hello and welcome friends!
Happy June 1st to you all! 
I look forward to seeing how you interpret it!

For my card, I've used only the theme this time:

I started by blending green ink through the larger of the Christmas Wreaths stencil.
After rounding the corners, I felt it needed a bit more, so I stamped one of
the streamer images from the Christmas Bell Medley stamp set in the corners.
For the 'berries', I used sequins from the Blue Shimmer ShakerBlends.
I heat embossed one of the sentiments from the Christmas Baubles stamp set
to finish the front of my card.
I hope that you can join in and link up your project at

Beautiful wreath, the shading on the leaves is fabulous. super idea with the sequins but oh how tedious to place them. (you don't have a cat helping although one snort from Colby would be the end of the sequin pile) Rounding the corners and that banner really added interest to the card. awesome.

Beautiful use of this stencil - which is still NBUS in this house. ;) The sequins look awesome with it! (Note to self...)

What a fabulous wreath Chris! I love that you coloured it in non-traditional colours and the embossed sentiment banner. Vicky x

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
