It's November 25th, which means three things around here. First, it's my youngest sister's birthday (happy birthday, Mah!), second, the panic inducing realization that we are a month away from Christmas has set in (why does this catch me by surprise every single year?) and finally, time for the Papertrey Ink November 2016 Blog Hop.
My daughter & I headed to Victoria to visit family last week and came home to jump right into Thanksgiving dinner preparation, so I didn't expect to find time to play along this month but the inspiration photo Nicole gave us just kept calling to me. The retro vibe and nontraditional Christmas colors were just too fun to ignore!
A Rustic Wreath is cut from white felt and adhered to a Limeade Ice circle. I did this before stamping and heat embossing part of the sentiment on the circle. The holiday is cut three times (2 white and 1 Hawaiian Shores) and layered to make it a little sturdier and adhered to the circle next.
This circle is popped up on a dot embossed flag, which is popped up on the card base. The brightly colored ornaments in the inspiration piece became enamel dots embellishing the wreath on this card.
I plan to ignore the Black Friday sales and make my way through the beautiful cards linked to the Hop this morning.
Thanks for stopping by,
