"Autumn Wreath"

Good Morning Blog friends, another day another cardOpps! just had a thought that`s the name of Edna`s Blog, hope does not mind me using it as a quote. 
Thank you for calling in again today, I really love to have you visit.

I saw on CarolsZ`s Blog a few weeks ago some of her beautiful wreaths, it made me have a wee think.  The only time we have a wreath on the door is at Christmas, I should think about changing that.................  When we were in the woods the other week the boys and I collected some Fir Cones with intentions of making an Autumn Wreath, that`s not done as yet.  Might get round to it when they get back from holiday.  They arrive home very early today so no doubt they will be along at some point either this evening or tomorrow.

Although I have not got round to making a wreath for my front door here is a card I made yesterday showing an Autumn wreath.   
Using some more of that dreaded "Green" card again, it has to be used up . Actually I think I will just donate the rest to the boys school.  I am sure the children will use it without a second thought.

Base card approx 6 x 6
Green co-ordinations card 
White card embossed using a Marianne's Emboss & Cut Die
Edge of the card is decorated using a Martha Stewart Punch
I also punched the same design on another co-ordinating piece of green card
Really do not know why I have put that piece of ribbon across the card!!!
I cut out a circle to put all the bits on to keep the design "round" 
Finished it off with a bow and a few pearls

That`s it for today
Thank you once again for popping in to have a look, I really do appreciate it

  5. Hi Patricia,
    I love, this card. Wonderful idea the wreath. With your permission I may borrow this idea for some of my Christmas cards this year. Although I haven't got the Marriane Die, but will use an embossing folder instead.
    I bet you both will be glad to see the boys.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

    Lots of love from Patricia xx
