One Layer Card

Hello Everyone,

For today I am playing along with Freshly Made Sketches, Christmas Card Challenge and One Layer Christmas Card Challenge. Once again FMS has inspired the layout while trying to keep it to one layer per OLCCC. Here is my card for today. Enjoy.

I tried to achieve the silohette and shadow technique with the wreath
but it just turned out gray. I think I may have needed a bolder stamp for this to really work.
Nevertheless, it turned out great. 
I like the limited color palette. It shows off the sparkle and the
bold festive sentiment.
Trying to capture the sparkle of the red Stickles.
In this picture you can see my attempt to shadow the stamp.
I needed darker colored paper.
This card is so teeny-tiny measuring in at 3"x 4". I think this would be great card to attach to a bottle of wine. In fact, I think that is exactly what I am going to do. I like the offset focal image, it gives it a bit of interest plus the sentiment fits very nicely offset as well.

Entering Challenges:
Freshly Made Sketches: FM214
One Layer Christmas Card Challenge: #22 ATG- Silhouette option
Christmas Card Challenge: SCCC #52- ATG


I am going to keep this short and sweet as I have a boatload of work to do today. Thank you so much for stopping by and do hope to see you soon! Take care!

All the best,

LOVE the drama of your card! The black, gray and red wreath is gorgeous. LOVE the shape of the wreath with the big sentiment and bow. And I agree, it would be perfect with a bottle of wine!
