Holiday Wreaths

 Hi Everyone,

I took some time to play in the current Time Out challenge, since Anita kept tempting me with her beautiful inspiration cards.....
Here is the result:

And this is the inspiration photo:


You see I just recreated that door wreath. 
My supplies: 
wreath die and sequins dies by My Favorite Things
Happy die by Winnie & Walter
holiday sentiment by Neat&Tangled.


Did some ombre sponging on the HAPPY and covered it with glossy accents.
________


And then I had that beautiful shimmer paper left over from my wreath die cuts. I cut it so that I can reuse it...in the past it would just go into a bin (and never reused....) but I am changing that - made two more cards....


Linking up with:

The Christmas Card challenge - see picture below


The bow in the card below is also by MFT. The happy above also got some Delicata gold ink mixed in - gives it a wonderful shimmer.


Also linking up with:
Simon Says Monday challenge - just a pinch (a few sequins)
Winnie & Walter - join in to win

Yes, Anita is a nag, isn't she (kidding)? She talked me into it, as well, but you, definitely, are going to win with this number. Good grief, it's gorgeous, as are the other two you put together. Amazing that you were able to use your scraps to such a wonderful affect. WOW!

Cathy Potosky said...

Your wreath card is wonderful! Great way to use buttons! This would make a great entry over at Emerald Creek Dares Challenge! :)

Ashwini Rao said...

Wow!! Its really wonderful how you've used up the entire sheet - doesn't feel right to call it scrap after I see you use it like this - love it!
