Sketched Leafy Wreath

I have used the beautiful new Simon Says Stamp Sketched Leafy Wreath hot foil plate/die set, from their latest Yay You release, to make three cards celebrating three different occasions!...
This first one I made a bit ago, but since making it, I have taken it apart and redid the background.  I hot foiled the wreath with silver foil(foil from the glimmer system),  and then die cut and colored with my markers.  I layered it, and added a stamped and silver embossed Simon sentiment.  Instead of the original...
...I decided on a plain white background, and used a Simon Thin Frame rectangle die to emboss the rectangle onto the card panel.  I like both, but am in a "go whiter" mood these days!  

The second one, a card for Fall...
I used different foil, gold(the foil is from the glimmer set), and different colored markers.  This time used a CZ Design sentiment die, die cut in gold and layered.  I used the same A2 thin rectangle die, this time rather than emboss, I die cut and layered the die.  Super simple!  

The third one, for Christmas!...
I used gold foil for the wreath, again, and colored with green markers.  I die cut the "rejoice" in gold and layered.  I made enamel dots (squirting the dots onto a piece of acetate, and then used a razor to remove.  I then adhered to wreath.) with some old Ranger enamel accents.  It doesn't appear they make this any more, but I've listed something below, also made by Ranger's Wendy Vecchi that might be similiar.  I chose to make this a square card.  I adhered the wreath to a white panel and then popped up on a gold panel and card. 
Just love this die, and it's versatility...lots of fun making these cards!  
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
