Stamp A Wreath .... or Swag?

Hello friends!
I am popping in to share my 2nd take with the "Sophisticated Wreath".

If you follow me over Instgram My Story, you may have seen my question (whether it is a good idea to use the Sophisticated Wreath to create a swag...)

Well, I did and here it is!

It is bit more challenging to create a swag.
However, this is where you can get very creative. Because you can arrange however you like it. 

 I stamped and die cut many pieces and had the rough swag idea...😀
I then inked up the center of the card stock.

Using Yellow Drizzle Ink seems like a good idea and that's why you see a "glow" in the middle of the card. I used Ranger Ink Applicator and sponges to do the job.

Once I positioned the swag to my liking, I then stamped some more with the tiny stamps from the set.

I can stamp floral wreaths, swags.... all day!! I wonder what idea might come next!

What a bright and cheerful card. The yellow in the background adds such a warm look to your card. I would think that the swag idea would be harder to pull together than the wreath as you have to balance the other side of the swag, whereas it is done for you when you form a wreath. Your swag looks beautiful! Love all the extra touches you added with the liquid pearls.
