Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Welcome Home


Welcome (no pun intended!) to another installment of the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.  This time round our theme is "Welcome Home".  Paper Issues  is our sponsor for this chalelnge and the LEAD will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Paper Issues store! A big thank you to Paper Issues!


For my card I decided to create a wreath using the turquoise, rust and purple colours in the picture. I created a ring using circle Nestablities and then assembled my punched branch boughs around it. Since it was a rustic picture, I added some distressing and a twine bow.

Wow, this is beautiful! I just got that MS punch after hunting one down for years. I think they stopped making it for a while.
