Sparkle & Shine Challenge #26

Hello there, so happy you dropped by today!  It's the 15th of the month which means it's time for a new challenge at Sparkle & Shine!  Our sponsor this time is Right at Home.  The winner of this challenge will receive a $15.00 gift card to the Right at Home store.

Isn't that wreath adorable?!  I was so taken with it that I decided I wanted to try and make a wreath for my card just like it!

OK, well not "exactly" just like it but pretty close, right?  First I placed some polka dot vellum from PTI on a white card base.  For the base of my wreath I used Reverse Confetti Wreaths Confetti Cuts and cut 3 of the large wreaths from Kraft card stock.  I staggered them slightly to add some bulk to my wreath, then I wrapped some white heart lace around it to mimic the white ribbon in the inspiration photo.  I used the cute rabbit from Hippity Hoppity to decorate my wreath, coloring him with Copics and fussy cutting him.  I wanted to add some orange to my card so the little carrots were just perfect for this.  I fussy cut each of those little buggers because I don't have the dies to this stamp set (why yes I am slightly crazy, thanks for asking lol!)  I cut the bow using a Simon Says Stamp die and patterned paper from PTI.  For the sentiment the word "happy" is from Winnie & Walter and the word "Easter" is from The Stamps of Life.  I finished my wreath with some white sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I just love how this card came together!  I hope that you'll be as inspired by the wreath as I was and play along with us.  Not that you need to make a wreath card, be sure to check out all of the inspiring cards the Sparkle & Shine design team created for you!
