Hello friends. Linda is our hostess this week at Merry Monday, and she would like to see a WREATH on your Christmas cards.
When I was growing up, my mom had a wreath she put on our front door every year and I hated it! It had all kinds of fruit on it (along with pinecones and greenery) and I thought it was just about the ugliest thing out there! And wouldn't you know, now I wish she still had it! In looking back, I think about the colors of the fruit in dark yellows and golds and mixed with the light and dark greens, it really was pretty! So anyway, as a tribute to my mom's wreath, I used the wreath from PTI's Birds & Blooms and came up with this:
No fruit, but kind of just went with the colors that I remember. Hard to believe that I didn't like these colors back then, but I think this wreath is very festive in this color scheme!! And I think my mom would like it too! :0) My main green color is Ocean Tides (PTI) and I stamped my background with Hero Arts Leafy Vines stamp and my gold sentiment is WPlus9's Hand Lettered Holiday. I also used a Gina Marie Designs rounded square die to build a frame around my wreath.
We're excited to see a gallery of beautiful wreaths this week, so play along with us! The Design Team has some awesome inspiration to get you started too, so check it out and then show us your creations! You can find it all right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
