Pretty Wreath Card

It has been a very cold and snowy January here and we're only half way through it. I hate this extreme cold but I do love seeing everything sparkle and shine. I just love how the trees look all layered in sparkly snow...so pretty! 
After my walk this morning seeing all this beauty I felt inspired to create but was to tired today to paint (which is what I had been planning to do). 
I did get myself down to my craft room and I had a very enjoyable afternoon creating some birthday cards. I am getting low on my birthday card stash and I thought I should get some made and ready to go!

I got a new stamp set right before Christmas and I have not had a chance to use it until today. It was also my first time really using my Disress Oxied Inks and I love how my card turned out. 

To create this 4x4 card I started off using a MFT burlap background stamp. I stamped it in a Hero Arts soft yellow ink. I distressed the edges of the card with some Vintage Photo and Antique Linen Distress Ink.
The Stamp set is from Concord and 9th, Love You, Meant it. I have wanted this set for a while and was so happy to add it to my collection.
I used SSS Khaki ink for the wreath and Black ink for the sentiment.
The flowers and the leaves were stamped with Distress Oxide inks... Wild Violet, Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint.

I made three more cards while I had the stamp set and inks out and I'll share them here over the next couple of days.

It's a cheerful springy card for this cold, snowy day and I had a lot of fun using this stamp set and using my new inks today!

Thanks for stopping by,
