Playing With the House of Cards December Challenge

Hello, my friends!

Today is actually an extra little "for fun" post!
I was recently visiting a friend's blog, and clicked on a button in her sidebar.
It took me over to House of Cards.
How have I not been there before?
It's a monthly challenge blog, where a number of familiar faces hang out!

When I popped in they were having a blog hop in combination with their challenge.

 I just had to get in on the Challenge.
Look at this fabulous inspiration photo:

Isn't that a pretty photo?

I was really intrigued by the all red wreath.
Then I was reminded that I recently won a fabulous wreath image from MHK Designs.

Here is the card I made:

I colored my wreath all in red, and fussy cut it out.
Using papers that I also won from MHK Designs
I die-cut a doily, and placed it behind the wreath.
Then I used this wonderful red and green houndstooth paper for the background. 
Finally, I mounted it on a white card base, and added some bling.

The wreath was mounted on foam tape.
I also inked the edges of the doily with white ink.

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Bling: Kaisercraft Rhinestones - Green;
Die: Cheery Lynn - English Tea Party Doily.
