I LOVE Autumn

......I knew, it's the beginning of August and here I am starting up on fall stuff.  I can't help it, it's my favorite time of year......

I decided to CASE myself and make a fall wreath.  Here's my original card, made in 2016:

I used the same stamp set to make my wreath, but updated it with a newer 4 Seasons sentiment die and a plaid background......I have learned to love fall colors mixed with turquoise/aqua!

supplies: white card stock, Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow patterned paper, Simon's retired Nutty Over You, Simon's Fresh Fruit mini ink cubes, plus Audrey Blue and 2 brown inks, Gina K Wreath Builder stencil, 4 Seasons die and 4 Seasons Sayings, twine, enamel heart, adhesive foam squares to pop wreath up

As I did last time, I stamped the brown vine into a circle, then methodically added leaves and branches in bright colors.  I'm so sorry that this Simon set is discontinued, but Gina K has an Autumn Wreath Builder set that would give you the stamps to do something very similar.  I used the same inks to color a scrap to cut the Autumn die from, and triple-layered it before adding it to my card.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend - we'll be spending part of ours with our youngest son!  Can't wait!

I can see why you love it Lin. The color combo really pops when put together.

What a fun update on your wreath card. Turquoise is a stunning addition to fall color combos!
