BBTB2 Challenge Card

Over on BBTB2 the challenge was to use this wreath on Joys of the Season.normal_JoysoftheSeason_page45

Now I love that wreath and have used it many time ssince my husband bought me that cart for my birthday the first year I had my Cricut.  I wanted to give it a special twist and came up with this. 


The card is 5 1/2” and I cut the wreath at 5”.  I also pulled the twigs and pine cones from the same cart just one page away.  normal_JoysoftheSeason_page46

I think I cut this at 4” and I used that great Core’dinations gemstone brown that I love for the swirly twigs and some wonderful buffed gold that I got at Joann’s for the pine cones.  Unfortunately you can’t see all that shine!  For the wreath I used two shades of green Core’dinations and some velvet green paper that I have had forever.  I bought several 8 1/2 x 11” sheets a long time ago and have used it every holiday season since.  You can’t see the velvet either.Smile with tongue out The base of the card is from one of the new premium Christmas DCWV 2010 stacks.  So pretty! 

I heat embossed the sentiment, but I had a little bit of a problem with this so it didn’t turn out as great as I’d hoped.  All in all though, I like the card and not the sentiment. 

Here’s some more shots of the card.  P1070428


There, now you can see the velvet paper.


And there you can see the gemstone cardstock and sort of see the great gold paper.



It’s on to the weekend and thanks for stopping by!
