Arrange a Wreath Color Throwdown #609

 It’s another hot day here. Not quite as hot as they had predicted, so far we are holding at 93. I can’t wait for cooler weather and healthy air quality. For the last several weeks we have had unhealthy air due to all the smoke blowing in from the California fires. We live in a valley just below the Sierra’s on the Nevada side and it seems we are on a direct path for the wind to blow the smoke in and then it just settles into the valley.

Since I have been pretty much housebound I have been crafting quite a lot. Today’s card was inspired by the Color Throwdown 609 challenge. 

For my card today I started with a heavy whisper white card base. I then layered a piece of retired Blueberry Bushel paper cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. On top of this I layered a piece of In Good Taste DSP cut to 4 x 5 1/4. I used the Wreath Builder Dies and cut the wreath out of Old Olive cardstock. I cut several large and small flowers out of Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick. I then glued the wreath down and used glue dots to randomly place the flowers around the wreath. I used champagne rhinestones for the middle of the flowers. I stamped the sentiment with Blueberry Bushel ink on a scrap of whisper white and trimmed it down and popped it up with dimensionals. I then used a piece of vanilla ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack and tied a bow and placed it in the bottom middle of the wreath with a glue dot. I added a few more champagne rhinestones on the card.

For the inside of the card I layered a whisper white piece cut to 4 x 5 1/4 on a piece of blueberry bushel cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. I added a couple of leftover flowers from the front and stamped the sentiment from the   All Things Fabulous stamp set. I finished off a whisper white envelope with a piece of matching DSP.

Hope you all are having a great weekend and have found time to do some crafting! 

All products used with the exception of the Blueberry Bushel cardstock and ink are available on my Stampin Up shopping page. I would recommend using our new color of Misty Moonlight in place of the Blueberry Bushel if you want to make a similar card. I would love to have you as a customer!
