Here's how the day got started...
A stamped image on water color paper and just a few pencils to start coloring. This twiggy wreath is a cornucopia of fruits and vegetables and I enjoyed shading every image. Here I've started to color just the blackberries in the wreath. Then they would get water colored before coloring another section.
Here I let my IG Followers know I was finished after 13 pencils later and ready to crop for a card! Oh the suspense! Now to decide on the card design that will let this Autumnal Wreath shine!
Here's a sneak peak while you're waiting to see the finished product. As you can see I decided to paper snip around the twigs for a more dimensional look. The wreath overall is quite large and I wanted to see more pretty designer paper. A gold embossed greeting centered inside the wreath just gorgeous!

And here we are with a 5x5 finished card. Architecturally, with the scale of this wreath I think it would drown out an A1 Card. The 5x5 design allows me to have more balance in card stock and designer paper. My card base is the yummy Stampin' Up! Baked Brown Sugar, a nice warm neutral! The mat in 2014-2016 In Color Blackberry Bliss.
Later in the week you'll see more of this Authentique paper pack called Remembrance. It's been just what I needed when working with Blackberry Bliss. If you're willing to sacrifice some yardage of your ribbon give this Figure Eight Bow a try. It's just what this larger size card needs to adorn this Autumnal Wreath don't you think?
I love it! I don't know what I'll do with it, the inside panel is still blank until I know just what or whom it will end up with. I thought the sentiment from Apothecary Art "So Grateful" perfect for the season. Giving Thanks.
