Hi! Yesterday was such a beautiful day, it was difficult to stay at my craft table very long. I did mange to fit it all in though. It was great to get some fresh air while my husband and I worked in the yard. Hey, the high was around 65 degrees...and it was sunny. That's unusual for northern Illinois in mid November; so we had to take advantage of it.
Anyway...I'm sharing a card that I made for 2 challenges.
Just Us Girls #162 - Make a ribbon wreath. I hesitated at first when I saw this challenge. I've never tried making a ribbon wreath before. But, it's a challenge! The JUGS site provided a link to the wreath tutorial, so why not give it a try?
Dynamic Duos - DD#28 color challenge. I already planned to use Cherry Cobbler ribbon for my wreath, so this color challenge was perfect for the card I wanted to create.
This is how I combined the two challenges ~
I wanted to create the look of a wreath hanging on a wall. So I used my simple stripes impression plate for the focal panel. That always reminds me of wainscoting. Love that vintage feel! The sentiment is from a brand new Stampin' Up! stamp set called Greetings of the Season. I love the combination of fonts in this sentiment.
Thanks so much for taking a look today!
