Happy Saturday.  I’m posting a little late today but I have a lovely holiday wreath to share with you.  I played this morning in the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge and the inspiration site was Wind and Weather.  I loved the whole wreath section but was especially inspired by this Romantic Roses Wreath.

Romance Roses Wreath

I kept the roses and white theme and changed mine up to be snowy winter rose wreath.  You can see my step by step wreath tutorial here to see how I create the base of the wreath.

I started by creating a circle base for the wreath with two different sizes of circle dies.  I punch out lots and lots of pine sprigs and attach all the way around the circle alternating directions as I go. KC MFT Mini Rolled Roses 2 center

I added the roses and tucked the holly leaves and pine branches around the roses. I lightly applied touches of liquid applique to the foliage and roses for a soft snowy effect.  I finished by adding the bow. Here’s a closer view.

I will add more red elements if I make this wreath again.  Although I love the white snow on the foliage I think there could be a little more red for interest.

I hope your weekend is relaxing and enjoyable.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping in.
