TSTR Challenge Wk 41# Scandinavian Christmas

Ive been following this challenge blog for a while
and this is my first entry... And as i love Scandinavian
Christmas designs....
How mad is this..i only made this
wreath yesterday....its a old one from work
with missing bits and was ready for the bin!
So i brought it home....took off all the broken bits.
Took some gingham ribbon and threaded it around the wreath
hand painted the wooden heart and made a bow out of
riffia...and its now hanging in the dining room...and will stay
there all year i think its not just for christmas..What do you think?

I really hope the wreath is alright to it says it
can be any project not just a card!!!
Why not pop over and take a look at the DT's creations they
are all gorgeous.
If you fancy having a have until Sunday 26th
to enter your creations...and good luck x
Thanks for stopping by hugs clare xx
