Tuesday Trigger - Fantasy in Fall

I've decided we are going to have grapevine wreaths on the front door this year for the holiday season. For as long as I can remember we have had fresh pine wreaths, but since moving into a house with a green door, every year I put the wreaths up and say "why didn't I get something that will stand out better?"

This is a long winded way of getting to the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: Fantasy in Fall.

You might see the colors or felt flowers first, but I immediately saw a grapevine wreath.

I coiled some heavy, coarse jute three times and then wrapped a 4th coil loosely around the other coils to make my wreath. Like the inspiration photo, I paired the hard wreath with the soft, feminine felt rolled flowers cut with a MFT die.

A few felt leaves, pearl centers and a swirly "merci" finish things off.

The Simon Says Stamp current challenge is "Thanksgiving/Thank You", so I am linking this card up to that challenge as well.
