Happy Labor Day weekend in the USA!

I just wanted to get on here quickly to share my Merry Monday card for the week.  Bonnie is looking for wreaths this week, and here is mine:

I gotta run to a friend's baby shower, so I'll be back later this evening to share details.
Ok, I'm back!  The baby shower was really nice, and my friend Rachel looks so cute with her pregnant belly!  :)  I would share the card I made for the shower, but I unintentionally deleted the pics from the camera...sigh.  That's what happens when I'm in a hurry!
So, onto the details of this card...the wreath is a Silhouette file, cut in two shades of green.  The bottom layer was glued down in one piece, while the upper layers were cut apart and glued randomly to *hopefully* look natural.  The bow is three burlap strings I had laying on my desk.  The sentiment (Vintage Christmas- The Paper Company) is stamped in Memento Ladybug Red, while Frayed Burlap was used around the edges of the card base and wreath panel.  I think I may add some glitter to the wreath for some oomph...what do ya think?
Anyway, that's all there is to it!  Thanks for looking!
