Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #73 - Wondrous Wreath - The Artful Stampers Blog Hop

Mossy Meadow #1



I've ignored my Color Coach journey a little bit so when my upline Alisa (you may have hopped here from her blog) gave us a sketch challenge for The Artful Stampers Blog Hop I thought I should pay Mossy Meadow a visit.

I absolutely BET that I am not the only participant to use Wondrous Wreath for this sketch...it lends itself so well to a festive card!

The Color Coach combination is Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz which gives a lovely earthy monochromatic tone to my Christmas Card.

I stamped the inside of the card too....the sentiment was in Mossy Meadow and the bow was 'stamped off' in Pear Pizzazz and then stamped on top of the sentiment. It looks beautiful in real life. :)

I love how this card uses two types of card stock, two ink pads and one stamp set/framelit....perfect for economical mass production! 

I used a retired Pear Pizzazz Glimmer brad for the middle of my bow, but you could use an Antique Brad, Candy Dot or a Rhinestone Jewel coloured with an Old Olive Blendabilities marker and it would look just as good. I have included those links below as well as everything you need to make this card. :)

To see what Annette Sullivan has done with this sketch, hop on over to her blog!
