Rustic Wreath

designer Linda Carson
      Hey all!  Today's card was made with one of those happy surprises I discovered in my Christmas stash purchased last year!  It's a Spellbinders 3D M-Bossabilities folder.  
     I searched Pinterest to see cards created using this folder and came across this beautiful card by Debbie Olson.  I do love her work and stalk her often!
     Debbie airbrushed her card and shared the Copic colors she used.  Since I've been dabbling in airbrushing as in the Little Drummer Boy card I thought I would CASE her card. Hope you'll visit Debbie's blog and see what this jewel looks like airbrushed by a pro!
     The things I changed were distressing the edges and mounting on green cardstock.  I played around with other larger bows and embellishments but decided to keep it flat for mailing. 
     Sentiment is from the ODBD His Birth set with die cutting using ODBD Mini Tags.
     Thanks for visiting!
