Wonderous Wreath tags

Here's a peek at something new coming out in the mini catalogue at the end of the month.  This wreath comes as a 2 or 3 step photopolymer stamp set with matching framelits and it's awesome.  I can see it being used for things other than Christmas, such as these tags I've made here (I've used 2 layers but it also has a layer to add berries to the wreath):

I've made these tags to attach to prizes for my daughter's upcoming kindy gala - stay tuned for details - another blog post on that soon.

Cardstock: Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White
Stamps: Wonderous Wreath, Itty Bitty Banners
Ink: Old Olive, Garden Green, Blackberry Bliss
Framelits Dies: Wonderful Wreath, Banners, Bitty Banners,  
Other: Itty Bitty Shapes Punch pack (retired), Pearls, Dimensionals,
