Harvest Wreath Card

Happy October, sweet friends! (Anyone know how it's October already?) I hope you're having a wonderful week! Today I'm sharing this Autumn-inspired card on the My Craft Spot blog! :o)

Fall foliage is one of the blessings of the season and I thought it would be fun to create a harvest wreath card with Kimberly's fabulous metal dies. :o) The start of a new month means a new recipient for the treasured I Feel the Love Project, where we deliver love and hope to those in need of extra sunshine.

This month we are making Thanksgiving cards for Atascadero Christian Home, spreading holiday love to the sweet elderly residents in the retirement community. Seniors need to know they're never forgotten. :o)
The beautiful leaves are from the Fall Border metal die set, one of my favorites of the recent release. I only glued down the bottom of the leaves so the rest could curl up a bit. The precious acorns are also from the Fall Border set, to which I added a touch of golden sparkle.
Sporadically tucked around the wreath are apples from the Fall Wheelbarrow set, which I covered in Glamour Dust. Sugared fruit is so pretty in wreaths. :o) The sweet sentiment is from Banner Sentiments- Fall, which I cut out with the Ribbon Banners- Wavy metal dies. I finished off my wreath with a flowing bow of Candied Orange crinkle ribbon, centered with a gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts rose.

The heart card base is the Heart Border cut file from the Silhouette Online Store. I thought it paired nicely with the heartfelt sentiment. :o) Bo Bunny papers were used for the leaves.

Thank you for fluttering on by and have a blessed day! :o)
