Background Paper Challenge

After posting so late last week, I really wanted to post on time this week........I actually created this card last Monday and couldn't wait to share!

I saw this wreath idea on a card swap at a recent stamping event and couldn't wait to try it out myself. Simple, basic layout.......so fast!.....so easy! This card has only the tiniest bit of stamping....the greeting, which is embossed and looks a bit more bold in real life. The fabulous patterns in the Designer Paper do all the work!

You know, I really love Fall, which seems to finally be here with the summertime weather finally behind us (I think!), but by far, the Christmas holidays are my very favorite of all!!!

Be sure to check out the other Bloggers' ideas! Have fun looking around.....and thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Many Merry Messages
Inks: Old Olive Craft
CS: Very Vanilla, Real Red, Old Olive
Misc: Scallop Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Real Red Grosgrain (1/4" & 5/8"), Dashing Background Paper, Clear Embossing Powder

Very fun card, Barb! I used that scallop wreath on my Convention swap cards this year! Dashing is one of my favorite paper sets!

A fun little card. I wouldn't have thought to create a wreath using the scallop & circle punches.
