Hi Crafty Friends: I love that expression! Speaking of expressions, today I have a card I made for the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 131 using PTI's Wreath for All Seasons http://tayloredexpressions.blogspot.com/2010/10/taylored-expressions-sketch-challenge_08.html I was inspired by Lynne on the PTI forum who posted a cute card using this sketch and the wreath set, so I decided to play along and use my new wreath set to create a birthday card for my niece. Here is a link to Lynn's card which was my inspiration: http://thequeensscene.blogspot.com/2010/10/tesc131-wreath-for-all-seasons.html This wreath set is so versatile and goes way beyond just a holiday wreath image. I paired it today with some In Bloom and Bitty Box patterned paper. I can see me recreating this card in many different color combinations. I used a tiny sentiment from Mixed Messages stamped in the center of the wreath to say Happy Birthday. I had such a fun time making this card which really reinforced why I love to stamp and make cards. I was happy just stamping all the pretty colors together. Thanks for taking a look.
