This week on the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge we have a simple, pretty straightforward sketch.
I just realized that I didn't follow the sketch as closely as I should have. Ooops!
I did try and move the wreath over to one side so it would more closely follow the sketch but it wouldn't be moved. I did a really good job of gluing the wreaths down.
The patterned paper I used is from the Come to Gather DSP pack. I confess that I have been "saving" the wood grain pattern. The concept of saving and not using my DSP is one I am actively fighting. It must be in a crafter's DNA to want to save things for just the right project which unfortunately can lead to an unmanageable craft stash. SO, I got brave and cut into and as they say the first cut is the deepest. I am over it now and look forward to using this pack of paper up and besides I know where to get more.
The sentiment is from the Painted Harvest set. I use this sentiment a lot and it is so perfect for this time of year.
Here's how I decorated the inside of the card. I usually add a strip of whatever DSP I am using on the card and add a coordinating die cut. These little sprigs are part of the All-Around Wreath dies. There are 2 sprigs on the die so you can make a bunch in just a few turns of the handle.
