Inspired Wreath

If you are looking for my Merry Monday card, please click here.



Hi everyone.  A second card for today (that doesn't happen too often!) :)  ... this is for the latest challenge at SCS - CAS (#246 - inspired by Pinterest).  Jen gave us three different photos from Pinterest and I chose this one as inspiration for my card.

I die-cut two layers of the wreath in soft suede card stock and sponged the edges for interest.  I die-cut the ornament border from both gold and silver glitter card stock and used the pieces to decorate my wreath.  A simple sentiment to finish.

Here's a close-up:





Stamps:  Christmas Greetings (SU!)
Paper:  White; Soft Suede (SU!), silver and gold glitter papers
Ink:  Soft Suede (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Breezy Wreath die (Poppy Stamps), Ornament Border die (Memory Box), sponge, glue, glue dots, and dimensionals



Very fun challenge with lots of options from the three different photos for inspiration!

Lovely soft wreath. I have this die, why didn't I think to use it as beautifully as you have here! Great card with the glitter ornaments. I'm still in love with the red bird card though! Such inspiration you've provided me today. TFS & Hugs

Oh my gosh Loll - Wow! This is absolutely stunning. I just know that I wouldn't have the patience to so beautifully (and perfectly) craft this wreath - so it makes it all that much more enjoyable for me to admire what you've done.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and leaving me such nice notes. Honestly got to tell you that it really made my day to hear from such a lovely and positive lady. Hugs D
