I started with a 5 1/2" square card base using Vintage Cream cardstock by PTI. I distressed a layer of wood paneling designer paper from Bramble Rose 6x6 pad by MME than added a layer of light turquoise script paper from Authentique's Seasons: Summer pad. Next layer is an Instant Camera die by Lil' Inker Designs. Then came the fun multi-step stamping with the wreath and its accessories. I added shimmer using a Wink of Stella clear glitter brush and also outlined the pinecones using a gold Spica pen. This layout is compliments of the Retro Sketches Challenge.
I also received inspiration from Stacy's great Curtain Call
Inspiration Challenge photo with a welcome home theme! The rustic wood and wreath were what inspired my choice of papers and stamps. I will add my sentiment later to the inside of the card...more than likely using it for a masculine Christmas greeting.
