wreath card - three ways

Started by creating a wreath inspired by sweet Melissa P. over at Papertrey Make it Monday. I started with Rustic Wreath like Melissa, but then took a shabby chic route.


My wreath nearly disappeared under all those goodies from Mini Blooms and Birds and Blooms. The sentiment is Scripted, die cut from brown glitter cardstock. The cardbase is stamped to give a modern feel using Flora and Fauna Texture Two.

I'm playing at:
Die Cut Divas - October

Then while I had Birds and Blooms out, I went back to my CAS roots and created this wreath.


I'm joining these challenges with my CAS card:
Inkspirational

Addicted to Stamps and More - CAS

And while the leftover blooms were still on my desk, I took a look at Winnie and Walter's Color Challenge for October and created this different kind of wreath around the wood slice from  Winter Woodland.



Added some gray leaves using In Bloom: Maggie's Roses and Big, Bold Extras. And a nestled-in sentiment from Flora and Fauna Texture Two. I'm really liking that copper embossing...



This last card is going to Sweet Stampers - Autumn or Halloween challenge too!

I actually had this inspiration photo from City Crafter Pumpkins challenge in mind while creating - I love the softer tones, though it's clearly an Autumn photo. Don't actually have any pumpkins on my cards, though!
