FFC20 - Wreath


Time for some mid-challenge inspiration at Festive Friday, where our current challenge is to include a wreath in your card.



For this simple card, I inked up a circle of dots (Papertrey Borders and Corners - Circles, I think) in Lucky Limeade and used my finger to take the ink off of 3 dots. Then I stamped this joy, that I think looks like a ribbon, nestling it in the space in my wreath.  I then added tiny dots of Stickles between each green dot. You probably can't see it here - even in real life, you just get a little twinkle when you move the card. Minimal and graphic - just the way I like it.

Now that Halloween is over, the countdown's really on  - the deadline for this challenge is next Wednesday and then we only have two more challenges for 2013. I hope you're playing along, and stacking up your Christmas cards!

Ardyth - I love this! The graphic wreath with the sentiment is genius. I think I am going to go back to my card and tweak it a little by CASEing your sentiment idea. So clever!! Thanks for sharing and your cards always inspire me to be cleaner and look at my stamps a different way!

I'm loving the stylised wreath Ardyth and of course you have placed the loopy sentiment in the perfect place. You have such a keen eye for design :0)

Perfectly Ardyth-esque, Ardyth, and completely clever ... love that nestling 'joy'ful ribbon and I see the glint of the stickles ... subtle and stunning! Anita :)

Perfectly CAS. Sweet little wreath and the most perfect sentiment; it doesn't overwhelm the wreath. And framed in that lovely red. Great card. Love this. Have a great weekend. Bev
