Merry Monday #123 - Use a Wreath

Hey everyone, it's Monday and that means time for another fun challenge at Merry Monday!  This week's theme is brought to us by the super sweet and talented Bonnie and she wants us to use a wreath on our cards.  I decided to try making my own wreath with dots of white Enamel Accents - I'm happy with how it turned out!

Here's Bonnie's inspiration photo:
