Make It Monday #300 - Build A Wreath

Hello friends.  This weeks Make It Monday challenge has Melissa showing us how to build a wreath using different images from different stamp sets!  It's always a delight to see what Melissa comes up with and she showed 3 FABULOUS cards to inspire us this week!

Here's what I came up with:


I started with a 3 3/4" by 5 1/2" card base like Melissa likes to use and added some plaid Canyon Clay DSP from the Bitty Big pack to the bottom third of my card base and then a strip of Honey Nut cs before starting to build my wreath.  I used Twig Wreath for my actual wreath, and then started embellishing using the swag from Autumn Adornments stamp set.  I just love those bitty pumpkins and acorns!  I also stamped and cut a few leaves from the Twig Wreath set with Honey Nut cs and then also stamped a few of the twig images in Canyon Clay ink.  I stamped my sentiment in Cocoa Bean ink using the Year Of Psalms: August stamp set.  To finish I added a seam binding ribbon, twine, & button, and then also added some Autumn Red Nuvo drops to the berries for a little extra added pop of color.

This was such a fun challenge to play along with and there's still lots of time to join in!  You can see Melissa's BEAUTIFUL cards and find all the details to play along right HERE.
 
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
