Harvest Blessings

Hey there, Bleeps! Happy Friday Eve! Today, I'm sharing a card using Verve's new Harvest Blessings set. I think wreaths are my favorite holiday/seasonal stamps and this one adds to my collection. I love how you can color the flowers to your liking. It can easily be made into a Christmas wreath just by changing the sentiment. My ribbon is a bit tacky, but I almost cut it away trying to trim off the frayed ends. I ended up saying, "forget it!" I'm sure you've been there before! I'm going for the distressed looked after that whole ordeal! ;)

Congratulations, SMK! You have won the Happy Harvest stamp set!!

I really love the layout on this card. The wreath with the rhinestones and the colouring is very pretty.:)

I love your card; that wreath is really pretty. What I really want to say, though, is that "bleeps" cracks me up. Everytime I read that from you, I laugh out loud. Thank you for both the amazing visuals and the comic relief.

I think you pretty much know how I melt for ribbon, so this card is a winner in my book! Orange zest is just yummy isn't it?? Great card!

Ok, I would have NEVER noticed the ribbon if you hadn't said something. And even then, it's hardly noticeable! But I'm anal like that, too. LOL DH thinks I'm crazy.
