An Autumn Wreath

     I spent most of Tuesday afternoon making a birthday card and anniversary card thinking I would be relaxing by the tv watching some new shows at night. Then it hit me. PTI's September blog Hop. I still needed to make my card. I am not a fast card maker. Luckily, I had an idea. Now to bring it to fruition.

The challenge is to create a wreath on the front of a festive card.  


A peek at the inside.


You can see that I used Card Basic as my foundation. I added some bling by glittering some 1/4"score tape. along the sides. I still need to stamp a sentiment on the inside; most likely a simple,  "Happy Thanksgiving".

This card also works perfectly for the challenge at Cas-ual Fridays blogspot. It's been awhile since I played along.


I'm also submitting this card to the 2013 Thanksgiving Crusade hosted by Susan Raihalaand Casology# 63 where the cue word is AUTUMN.

Thanks for stopping by.

The way the wreath frames the pumpkin is so charming. I love how you used that sweet leaf as a design element.
