Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Wondrous Wreath Thanksgiving card


Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

I used the colour palette from ColourQ and quite liked the idea of exploring non-traditional Thanksgiving colours.

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia so I only have the one Thanksgiving greeting which is unfortunately retired, but Wondrous Wreath (a current set) makes for a lovely Thanksgiving statement and I think it works beautifully in these colours. :)

I do have several American friends who celebrate Thanksgiving so this card will be going to one of them. :)

Here is our sketch....

Here are the colours from Colour Q...

  1. What a great CAS wreath card, love the colors you chose! Love ALL of it! Great job with the sketch!

  2. I recognised these colours immediately Alison and I just love how you used them for your Thanksgiving wreath - such a fabulous CAS card!

  3. Love those colors for a wreath and the way you angled it off the edge is a nice artistic touch!

  4. Fabulous job with both challenges! No one does CAS better than you, Alison!

  5. I love the purple for a Thanksgiving color and I agree with Jenny, you rock the CAS cards! :)

  6. Another great double challenge! Love the colors! Love how the wreath is tucked into the corner of the card.
