An Autumn Wreath

Hi friends,

Today is a special day for card makers. I made this one for the SCS HYCCT Challenge in which we use at least ONE paper punch (LOL) in our project.

Well, I've been wanting to create a leaf wreath for such a long time, so today is the day.

First I punched all the different types of leaves out (thanks Martha Stewart punches). Then I sponged different colors onto each, also Delicata Gold ink, then burnished each until they furled like a leaf. I cut out a large circle and popped it onto adhesive dots and used this as the base for the wreath.

Then I began building, one leaf at a time. I added the ribbon, then finally the rhinestones.

Thank you for looking!
