Sparkle Creations runs a Christmas Card challenge on their blog. This week they posted a photo of the most beautifully decorated exterior of a house as inspiration. I chose the front gate with a wreath hanging on it as my specific inspiration. Here is the photo:
I embossed white cardstock with stripes to mimic the white pickets of the gate and made a wreath using a circle made from Nesties and many pine branches punched from a variety of scraps of green dp. The wreath in the photo is covered in red and white baubles so I used pearls to represent them - which is perfect because sequins or pearls are this week's challenge for the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, so I'm entering it in that challenge too.
I debated putting a sentiment on the card front but decided it would spoil the effect and the simplicity.
The card is also for my June quota in the SCS Christmas Card Challenge.
