Rudolf day for February

It is time for another Rudolf day at Scrappy Mo's and we only have the three days this time to post our creations, so I'd best get cracking!
Two rather glittery creations this time.

First up is an attempt at one of those wreaths made of sticks. I didn't have that sort of wreath stamp, but I did have a circular mask and the inkylicious willow twigs stamp. I dotted it with red stickles berries and added a craft creations sentiment in the middle on 3d glue.

My second card was made using a stencil that I think may have been a magazine freebie about 10-15 years ago! I used some golden pine sparkle medium from imagination crafts through it, then mounted it on miriboard. The sparkle medium looks quite golden here, but it probably more green in real life. The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque.
Sorry my photos are a bit rubbish. It has been so dull and dreary, even with a bit of daylight we needed the lights on, which has made these cards more creamy coloured than they should be.
Thanks for looking, and I hope you get the chance to join in with a Christmas card over at Mo's blog. Do take a look at her fab card and the wonderful prize on offer too.

They are both stunning Sally and I love your stick wreath! It's stunning and so clever. I may have to pinch that idea. If I do I'll send peeps over here for the original inspiration Karen x

Wow...that willow twig wreath is beautiful What a brilliant idea you had to create a wreath from that stamp!

The second card looks great with that pretty shimmer and sparkle.

How clever of you to create the wreath with the willow twigs stamp. It looks good and I like the cheerful red stickles berries (stickles is just wonderful, I love to use it). The card with the three wise men is beautiful - simple and beautiful.

Hey! That stick/twine wreath is perfect--what a great way to make a wreath when you don't have a stamp like it. I love the red glitter spots. Your other card is fab too!
