Another Post Today for Beate's WSC27

I just had to post again this morning because I wanted to participate in Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #27. Can you say "cool layout". I just might have to do a second card using it to see what else I can come up with.
You've seen these wreaths before -- lots of the talented ladies on SCS have made them. Here is one example, and another but there are lots more if you go looking!! So clearly the idea is not mine, but I've been wanting to make one like it for a long time (probably since last Christmas).
I used my everywhere punch to put 2 holes on the side and tied a bow with some ribbon (getting the bow to look half decent was the hardest part of the making this card). I like the look of doodling around the edge, it just seems to finish off a large plain edged square like this. I also like the rounded edges of the card -- I see it on lots of cards but never think to incorporate it in my designs.
Dimensions of this card are 4 1/4" by 4 1/8". Supplies used: Cardstock: Buckaroo Blue, Whisper White (SU), Ink: Buckaroo Blue (SU), Stamps: Snowflakes (SU), Faux Ribbon (Papertray), Accessories: Ribbon (Michaels), Marker (SU).
Thanks for visiting, again.
