Penny Black Whirl Wreath

Hi everyone!

Sundays are always fun because it's time for another Paper Players challenge...this one from Joanne!

I always think that this color combo is so classy together. 

I chose to go with the gold, and add a bit of red.

The wreath is from Penny Black, and I just adore it! I have been happily cutting out just about every color of wreath I can think of.  I often laugh at myself when I think of how PAPER can make me so happy!

For this card I layered a white wreath on top of a gold one,to add a bit more texture. I cut the bow out of gold foil,too. Here you can see the tiny red jewels I adhered for a bit of color:

The sentiment is stamped in black form SU's Six Sayings. I think there will be LOTS of great cards entered in this challenge...such an awesome color combo. I can't wait to visit all the blogs and see what you all come up with!
