I've been working on this card for several hours, since I can't seem to sleep. I saw those luscious pumpkins at Color Throwdown, and I had to play with their colors of blue aqua, kraft and cream.
I started with an MFT vine wreath cut from kraft, and then added loads of Lawn fawn leaves cut in 3 shades of blue aqua and layered them up. I wasn't satisfied with the wreath only partially covered with leaves; showing the twigs below...so I ended up with the entire wreath covered with leaves.
I added gems and the sentiment stamped in a kraft colored ink...but it seemed lacking the kraft color. Three little bows fixed that for me. I think its a sweet card.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
It is a sweet card, Cat! I love the leaves in those colors and it's a great take on the gorgeous punkins! I hope you get your days and nights downsideup soon! Hugs, Darnell
The colors are beautiful and I'm loving ALL the leaves Cat...FABULOUS card!! Hugs. :0)
A terrific take on the inspiration! Wonderful layering of the leaves.
Oh, Cat! I adore those littlest Lawn Fawn leaves! You've arranged them so perfectly and I love the little bows!
Those little stitched leaves are just darling! Sweet card, Cat!
This is a gorgeous take on the inspiration photo, Cat! You nailed it right down to the texture! Such a pretty wreath!
Definitely a sweet creation! Thanks so much for joining us at CTD!
A truly wonderful, colorful card, Cat. Love it!
What a great use of those colours, the leaves look fabulous and at least the wreath underneath gave you a template and lots of lovely dimension. Hope the sleep thing resolves itself soon for you xx
Gorgeous card with the beautiful blue leaves! It’s a great take on the challenge!
your card is so pretty, Cat - love it!!
Love the colors, and the artistic play on them. I also LOVE this wreath! Who said leaves can't be shades of teal?!
A beautiful leafy wreath in blue with those tiny craft bows. I hope your sleep straightens out. I can surely empathize. I'm late to visit (your previous post of 5 days ago) due to lack of sleep and being burnt out.
Love the color combo & your beautiful wreath!
