I had to really fight to keep it as pared down as I could for the sketch. In the end, I think it's pretty successful, but I do think the space in the center of the wreath is maybe a tad too small for maximum "shaker goodness," lol... I did try to add some extra pops of color there, at least. Maybe I should have had a bit more contrast on the overlaying "joy" sentiment? Still kinda waffling there, but the colors are very soothing in person.
It was also good to get some time in for the ginormic Alphabet Rotary stamp. I find if I rock back and forth VERY slightly while stamping, I get the most complete impression of the letters. I was very finicky about them this time to get them all lined up as well as I could. Whew!
