A Moxy delicately glittered wreath

Hi there everyone.  I am getting down to the wire for getting some Christmas packages out in the mail, but I did make a little time to create for the MoxieFab glitter challenge using this sketch (#93) from Card Patterns.  
I chose to use this newly purchased twig wreath from MemoryBox and Cosmo Cricket's Mitten Weather paper pad.  I stamped the image on PTI vintage ivory card stock in SU gray classic ink.  I used the blossom Nestability die to cut out the wreath and then another Spellbinders die on the teeny polka dotted CC paper to back the wreath.  I made some purple berries on the wreath with a Copic marker and then dabbed glue(Very little) on top of the berries, ready to accept the pretty Martha glitter.  The PTI ivory panel was whizzed through the CB with a polka dot embossing folder and edged with the sketch end of the Copic marker.  I added a zig zag border that I cut out with an EK success border punch and brushed the edges with the Copic, placed some glue on those edges and then added the glitter.
The other polka dotted border was created with my SU scallop punch and the gorgeous lace on this is from my swap partner Ros.  Such pretty lace, I am really rationing it!  The sentiment is from the Flourishes set "Paperwhites" and I stamped it directly onto the CC paper that was cut with a Mat Stack die from PTI.
Hope you have a great day!  Thanks for taking a peek!
