Seeing as I love wreaths I knew I would have to make more than one card for PTI's September Blog Hop.
My original plan was to make this a Christmas card with a red, cream, and kraft color scheme, but when I finished wrapping my burlap wreath, my eye stumbled upon these beautiful leaves that I received in a surprise package yesterday from the super sweet Marybeth. (Thank you, Marybeth...you're the best!) I'm completely in love with these stitched leaves and just had to add them to my project, so I ended up changing the layout, color scheme, and theme. :)
With the change of theme and colors, my card ended up working for the current CAS-ology Cue Card Challenge: Autumn and CAS-ual Fridays Challenge: Fall Colors & a Leaf. Yay! It's been a while since I've been able to play along with these challenges, and I'm glad I finally got some extra time. I'm also entering this into the General Craft Supplies Challenge that is part of the celebrations at Moxie Fab World for the new Handmade Cards magazine. The burlap certainly came from my general craft supply (I bought it with intention of making a knock off of these cute ghost lights from Pottery Barn), but the wreath also has buttons and black sequins that were part of my stash long before they ever became popular embellishments on cards.
