  1. Wonderful idea to use gems on the wreath! I absolutely love the whole card but that ribbon is just sooo making me jealous!

  2. Trish, I love this image and the gems in the wreath-inspired! Beautiful card! Thank you for joining us this week for the Phindy's Place Challenge!

    I just read your "about me"-what a devoted husband you have. So very sorry about your pain issues but so glad you have crafting to take your mind elsewhere.
    Blessings to you!
