A bittersweet wreath

Virginia has posted her newest challenge, and the theme this month is Clean and Simple.


October is my favorite month, so I am far from finished making fall cards!  I pulled out my fall supplies and chose a couple stamps that haven't been used in awhile.

VV#8

supplies: Bittersweet Wreath, sentiment from The Craft's Meow Golden Days (now retired), Hero Arts Orange Soda ink, bow die from MFT Die-Namics Spring Wreath, Amuse dotted orange paper, cream and kraft cardstock, corner chomper

After stamping my wreath in brown ink, I colored in the berries with an orange marker and then added some glossy accents to them for a little bit of dimension.

Thanks for your visit today!
