The afternoon flew by, but I did have time while watching The News Hour tonight to get another card made for the Papertrey September Blog Hop. "A Wreath for All Seasons" has long been a favorite, but I haven't pulled it out in a while. This month's challenge to include a wreath on your card was the perfect opportunity. Here's another look at the inspiration photo:
I still have several October birthday cards to make, so that's the direction I took.
I did the stamping on a piece of Rustic Cream Cardstock and then embossed it with my new Burlap Impression Plate. The Brilliance Pearlescent Ink for the berries and part of the sentiment has a lovely sheen, so I chose some shimmer cardstock in rust and brown for the card itself. Here's a closer look at the pretty shimmer.
I found some rhinestones the perfect color and added a strip of them below the sentiment. I think my friend will like this tribute to her fall birthday!
I'm also linking this up with this week's CAS-ology Challenge which is Autumn.
