Ombre background wreath

It's my day to share at A2Z Scrapbooking.  Our challenge this month is Layers. I've gone for a coloured layer onto my white card base and then layers of ink on my wreath.   And I've chosen a non-traditional colour for my background,


I made the ombre background with some purple inks and then stamped the wreath (CL907)  in a variety of green inks - Hero Arts, Altenew, Versafine and  Distress inks.  I added some red and blue stars and flowers and some dots of purple and platinum Stickles.   The sentiment is stamped in Versafine green ink.  I added a red ribbon bow to the wreath.   A nice CAS card.

This beautiful wreath also comes with a matching die set (DI152)

This is so fun! I love the idea of that purple sponged background in combination with that sweet little wreath.

Beautiful wreath & lovely background, Dawn! PS--hope your water problems are fixed. We felt very fortunate that ours turned out to be near the street with a pretty inexpensive fix (as plumbing bills go!) & no house damage.
