Caardvarks - Circular Merry Christmas

I don't often create circular cards but I'm not sure why because they are a lot of fun and I think are a nice change from the standard card size!!
The most recent challenge over at Caardvarks is to create a round card with pizzaz. Well, I don't know if this really has "pizzaz" but I like it!!
It started out with me seeing the latest wreath image released by Papertrey Ink. Knowing I would not be getting it :( I decided that I could create my own!! I grabbed the stitch circle from the Borders & Corners {circle} (PTI) and stamped it with Ripe Avacado ink (PTI). Then, I used the tiny leaf image in the Borders & Corners {square} (PTI) set to create the leaves. I stamped some off to give more dimension. Then, I colored some half pearls with my Vermillion marker (Copic R08) and added them as the berries.
I added a Labels 1 mat of Spring Moss cardstock (PTI) under the white and adhered this onto my round base, with dimensionals, which was stamped with Background Basics: Text Style (PTI) in Spring Moss and then more of the little leaves with Ripe Avacado. I sponged around the edge and added the ribbon which matched the berries perfectly.
Off to see all the other round cards!
