I went in a little different direction from the inspiration photo and created a rustic wreath that was inspired by a Melissa Phillips card HERE.
Rustic Wreath from PTI has long been a favorite of mine, and dressing it up with flowers, berries and snowflakes was a LOT of fun! I used PTI's Farmer's Market Florals and Beautiful Berries: Winter stamp sets for my florals and PTI's Silver White Winters and Impression Obsessions small snowflake dies for the snowflakes that were colored with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give the rustic look.
**SPECIAL NOTE** It is with a sad heart that I tell you that this will be the last Merry Monday challenge. For many reasons, the creator of the Merry Monday challenge has decided to close it down, so I hope that for this last challenge, we can go out with a bang! This has been a wonderful ride for me the past 2 years, and I have loved creating cards for this challenge every week! I have made wonderful friends with the DT and with so many of you in the gallery who have played along! I'll still be around in blogland (and Instagram), so don't be strangers and come by and visit...you know I love it when you do! Change can be good and who knows where this will lead for all of us?? So keep making those Christmas cards and getting ahead before December arrives, especially with this last Merry Monday challenge! Let's flood the gallery with RUSTIC Christmas cards! Thanks for all the wonderful memories my friends!! :0)
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
