Peaceful Wishes for Pals
Pals Paper Arts has this wonderful inspiration piece to work from. Love all the white mixed with off whites, gold and silver. Couldn't pass up playing along as I love using white space :)
While trying to decide what to do for this card, a ribbon wreath came to mind. I have seen these around blogland for a while and today was the day to try one. I used 1/4" white grosgrain ribbon and went to work. Once complete, I added some gold half pearls, a button and some beaded gold twine for the bow. It's hard to tell in the picture (had to use the light box as no time to take a picture tomorrow morning edit: new picture now posted), but I used some delicious brushed gold paper for my layers. The sentiment is also gold. Didn't add anything else as I wanted the wreath to be the focal point of the card. You can find the tutorial here if you are interested.
Thanks for visiting today and hope your Christmas preparations are well under way. I'm well under control except for miserably failing in the card department :( Will have to use some old cards for those who have to get mailed this week (aka out of town family) and locals will benefit from new ones, or they'll get an extra special birthday card next year in lieu of a Christmas card this year. Hate myself for being in this position....on the upside, think I have my first New Year's resolution!
