Colour Dare 299 - Friend Wreath

Welcome to this week's Colour Dare Challenge! 

It's another Tic Tac Toe board!

These are so much fun because we don't limit you to to using just a line... you can use one line, two lines, the entire board or just a selection of colours if you want. The only thing you cannot do is add colours that are not on the board. So, GO FOR IT! 

I wanted to use the Fresh Air paper pack, and it is that paper pack on which this tic tac toe board is based, so my choice of lines is the top one and the diagonal line going down to the right. 

The stamp sets I used with the exception of the sentiments are (surprisingly) Christmas stamps. The wreath and all the trimmings are indeed from Christmas stamps but I purposely avoided the berries as they would really need to be stamped in a red colour and that obviously wouldn't fit the colour scheme here. I suppose I could have done them using Nutmeg but it just wasn't quite the same.
The wreath itself is barely visible as I stamped it in Glacier but with all the extras on top, it is almost completely covered. Leaves, branches and flowers were added. I hand cut the flowers but everything else was stamped directly onto the wreath. 

The New England Ivy Burlap Twine was cut into individual pieces (it comes flat with 6 pieces that can be cut apart to make individual stands). An old button was threaded with Juniper twine for a finishing touch.
