Papertrey Ink September Blog Hop

Hey Everyone!

Its been a while since I've had a chance to play in the monthly blog hop over at Papertrey Ink but this month is different!  Yay!  Found some time and some energy and some inspiration!  The challenge this month is: Wreaths!  Seriously!  I thought it was a little odd at first.  I think of wreaths and I pretty much think of Christmas.  But of course those wonderful creative peeps out there have surely expanded this concept beyond the holiday season.  I have (hopefully) done the same.

I used a pipe cleaner for the frame of the wreath.  I then tied various ribbons to it.  Easy.  I attached it with jewel brads.  I cut a window out of the front using a Spellbinders die and stamped the sentiment from PTI.  I used a white gel pen to make faux stitches.  I masked a circle around the sentiment on the inside and coloured it with Colourbox  Cranberry Ink.  Easy peasy.

Be sure to head over to the PTI Blog and join in the fun!

I'd also like to submit it to the following blogs:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes
Sister Act Anything Goes Card Challenge: #25

Thanks so much for dropping by!

  2. I wondered what you tied the ribbon to - a pipecleaner is perfect! Fun card!

  3. Fun and festive! Love the non traditional look!

  4. Very cute and homespun look. So creative to use a pipe cleaner as the base.
