VLVOCT04 Window Wreaths


When I saw the sketch for this weeks VLVOct04 challenge, I immediately visualized 2 wreaths hanging above a double window for some reason. I set out to create that image I had in my head and this is what I came up with. I used an old Fiskars shape cutter to cut the window..........a tool I rarely used since I bought it several years ago, but today it was the perfect item to have on hand. I cut the window out of SU! dsp and layered a background in the window from Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding. The overall background dsp is from a DCWV luxury stack. I made the wreaths with a MS fern punch and dotted them with liquid applique and red liquid pearls. The sentiment panel was done with a G Studio stamp, and layered on a Nestability tag done with BG and SU dsp. I tried to drape the teal colored sheer ribbon to look like a swag, but I'm not sure if I acheived the look I was going for?!
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a fine Monday!
