PTI September Blog Hop...

Hello friends... it is a wet, wet day here in my corner of the Pacific NW!  Another day to stay inside and craft... hopefully I will get the chance!!!   Last month I wasn't able to play along with PTI's monthly blog hop so was determined to participate this month.  Managed to make a clean and simple little card last night. 



This month's challenge is to make a project with a wreath on it.  I don't have any PTI wreath stamps, but I did have an idea that came together rather nicely once I got to work.   The twiggy wreath is a Memory Box die that I cut twice from PTI's kraft cardstock and then layered together.  The flowers are from the PTI set Bigger Blooms.  Since it is now fall I went with a fall color scheme of pumpkin orange, rust, soft yellow, olive green and light green.   After die cutting and stamping all the flowers and leaves I created some texture on the background cardstock using my trusty piece of burlap and my Big Shot.  And then roughed up the edges a bit for a more rustic feel.  The wreath was layered on top and then the flowers arranged.  I finished off my simple card by stamping the sentiment inside the wreath using Rich Cocoa ink. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft and Rustic White; Bazzill dark brown; Stamps:  Bigger Blooms; Dies:  PTI Bigger Blooms, Memory Box bramble wreath die; Inks:  Stampin Up! So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie, Real Rust, Old Olive, Memento Rich Cocoa; Black Diamond Stickles
