Its Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Hello Bloggers,
Today I was inspired by Archiver's rosette tree and a wreath of paper rings I saw while visiting the VA hospital this week. Their's was made of loops for holiday papers pinned to a form. you could do this in any shape. I thought about trying a tree shape too.
 I made various sizes of the rosettes thinking I would make a tree, but these rosettes evolved and morphed into a wreath instead. I am lucky enough to own Tim Holtz's new snowflake die from Sizzix. I got a new Martha scoreboard with a discount coupon this week so I just had to break it in. I am so please with my purchase. Check out Martha's site for other crafty ideas.



There are a number of challenges this week for holiday themed projects. 
I will be entering this  in a few.
Below is a close up view of the snowflake.
I spritzed the entire wreath with Perfect Pearls.

I added Holly Berry and Graphic 45 elements.
I will be playing some more with these ideas.
I hope you enjoyed my crafting today.

I love the look of this Beautiful wreath! I live in Singapore, so this would be perfect! Could I ask where I might find all the pretty lace edged papers or did you use a border edger on them? Thank you for showing your pretty creation!
