Fall Wreath

Good morning and welcome to my Sunday morning. Today's card share is a wreath made with the Silhouette and used very simply on a cream card base.

 
 
- the wreath is a Silhouette design from their online store, cut from a brown textured lightweight paper. Some orange Smooch was used on the berries - several layers to make a bright glisten.  (I have always loved the color of bittersweet and this orange look puts me in mind of the bittersweet wreaths we have).
 
- card base is a cream Recollection card stock, embossed with an Anna Griffin border that came with a matching embossing folder.
 
-  Impression Obsession clear stamp inked with Versamark, and heat embossed with my favorite Ranger Queen's Gold EP. (this clear set doesn't have a name that I can locate, but it's basically fall & Thanksgiving themed images).
 
The little pumpkin perched by the photo was in a recent Happy Mail that came from Brenda W of Inkspired to Stamp. (Her pretty chalk embossed card is shared in the Cards by Friends - click on the top tab).
 
Thanks for joining me on a Sunday morning, and I wish for you a day of happiness, sunshine and hugs from someone you love. Blessings.

I think my earlier comment posted prior to my finishing it, Mary. Please delete it for me. I love the texture of your wreath. It is classic elegance. The embossed border is so eyecatching. Love sentiment pops.

That is a great wreath. Such an elegant card. The embossed border adds just the right texture to the cream card base. Lowely.
