A Muse Wreath

The reason for the constant background change is because I simply cannot decide. That's all. I wasn't trying to be fancy, lol. This is only temporary until we get version 2.0 up and running. We are working on it as a team, so please bear with my color changing indecisiveness for now.

So, with the PSA out of the way, onto the cards, shall we?

I posted yesterday that today's post will be a goody. I fibbed.

No really, I really do love these two cards. I wavered back and forth on whether I should buy this wreath... I'm so glad I bit the bullet. Simple yet great as a focal image with so many possibilities.

I should've used a dark background for this shot. But, it's matted on ivory, if you look closely you'll see it on the top and bottom - complete with score lines. I used liquid pearls for the berries.

Here is card number two. It doesn't show, but I clear embossed the Merry & bright sentiment, gives it a nice glossy shine to complement the red berries, which sparkles as well - courtesy of stickles.

Stamps: A Muse Wreath, Hero Arts Fantastic Flourishes, PTI Mixed Messages, PTI Take a Bough

Proof that Audrey is watching too much Dora and Diego? She wanted me to open something, she said "abrer", which means open in Spanish. Being multi-lingual is cool and all (and I strongly encourage it), but considering her English vocab is as limited as it is, I would prefer her work on that first.

And finally, I want to wish my LL, Sarah a happy birthday! Love you!
