Birthday Wreath



MFTWSC151Love the sweet MFT Spring Wreath, so decided to use it for a birthday card I'm sending next month. The current MFTWSC challenge provided the layout. I used a piece of an invitation I saved for the Spellbinders scalloped circle. The wreath was cut in MFT Kraft & Jellybean Green felt. I added gold sequins with Mrs Grossman's gold metal dots on top & a small gold bow. I use the dots sparingly as they were discontinued years ago. MFT Dispersed Dots diecut was mounted to a scrap of green cardstock for the background & the focal point is mounted with foam tape. 
I love the mixed font of the sentiment from MFT Peaceful Wildflowers & it stamped perfectly using Memento Rich Cocoa. I'm also entering Pixie's Snippets Playground Week 100. So happy you stopped by.

Crumbs Greta - this really is fabulous. LOVE the design and the wreath is really lovely! What's extra clever is the addition of just three gold dots near to the sentiment - a lovely finishing touch to a really beautiful card. Can you tell I like it?

Hugs, Di xx
