The Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop theme this month is Celebrate!! I love to celebrate Thanksgiving more than any of the other holidays so I chose this incredibly pretty wreath to feature my favorite holiday : )
I started with a water color paper base and brushed just the faintest color blue on the main card base using my Ziggys. Next I cut a top panel 4.25 x 4" and stamped "Winter Wear Background" in a light green ink. I stamped "Autumn Wreath" and embossed it with gold EP - then colored it with my Zigs. Using the same blue Ziggy wash that I did on my card base I carefully inked around the wreath. I then added a stripe of Gold Washi tape to the right side of the card. For my sentiment I wanted two different fonts so I used a portion of "Happy Birthday Verticle" and "Thanksgiving 1$ Sale" for the rest of the sentiment. I mounted the sentiment on a little banner and added two gold nail heads. I popped the top panel up with foam tape : )
