My Time To Craft Christmas 3rd theme Wreaths

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart was panicky this go-around because of some personal timing issues this week. Seems like my evening routines every night were off-schedule. Such was the case of minutes to an hour or so away from design team deadline! Whew! Squeaked this card in with about 15 minutes to spare! Yikes!

Thankfully, Wednesday night I had stash-searched my starting group of supplies of the car  and red checked papers along with the decorative rub-on transfer. Thursday night, deadline night, I quickly found the dark red pre-folded card base (with matching envelope), the green patterned cardstock which I used 2 times on the layout. The red gem dots and heart 'dot' were already out on the table. 


Tis the Season to be Jolly Christmas card for #3 MTTCC's Wreath(s) theme=

  Didn't this turn out great!

[3] the card with tree patterned paper and red checked gingham patterned paper are both from The Paper Studio, Hobby Lobby stores
