A Victorian Christmas Wreath – by Heidi Blankenship

Heidi has a simple to create, absolutely gorgeous, Victorian Christmas beauty to share with us today. Every aspect of this card is so very appealing, from the simple design to the embossed wreath, gold accents and warm and cozy color scheme. Yes, this card got me at hello! Take a look:

Decorating this wreath is so fun – pearls, rhinestones, sequins – you pick it!

The other day I mentioned that often the tiniest of details sets a project apart. On this project that detail is the tiny red bird — see it? Absolutely perfect here.
