Variations on a Set: A Wreath for All Seasons, Part 2

I went square with the berry wreath and got jiggy with my Smooch!


First, I stamped the vine part of the wreath in rich cocoa Memento ink, then the berries in angel pink. Then, using my hot pink Smooch, I added shimmery dots over the angel pink. LOVE the shimmery effect and how it makes the wreath look so much more dimensional and interesting.

Take a closer look!


This weekend in America, we're celebrating Memorial Day Monday. We have parades and picnics and ceremonies honoring those who have died in service to our country. But there are people all over the world who have put on a uniform and fought--and died--so others can live in freedom. Let us honor their memory not just Monday but every day.

  3. Divine card as usual and thank you for explaining Memorial Day. I guess ANZAC day most closely approximates this day to us in Australia.

  5. Love the card - wish I had that set. Thanks for the reminder about this weekend. In Lincoln, the VFW has a small plot of ground near downtown that has a square filled with bricks that have veterans' names on them. John has a brick, there. Flag poles surround this little area and I'm sure our colors will be flying all weekend. I was thinking yesterday that if the sun decides to visit us again sometime this weekend, I'd like to go sit on one of the benches there with John and enjoy the gift of freedom provided by the men and women of our military.
