This card base started out with some red and pink Distress Stain then I used a leave design stencil to add some of that leave design with Distress Stain and then with white embossing paste. Using the stencil helps it fit the Simon Says Flickr challenge. This provided the ground work for the elements I then added.
The wreath was stamped and then cut out with a matching die. The words "big hugs" and the "thanks" were then cut out from black cardstock. All of these dies are from Simon Says Stamp.Here is the Card Concept challenge.
