Doodle Rose Wreaths

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “Wreaths”. The team have created a bunch of beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. We have also a fun prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org.

My inspiration from the picture was the lovely pink and green colours and I tried to incorporated these colours into my card. A few weeks ago I received a lovely wreath die from my team leaders, Diane and Darlene, and it was just perfect for this challenge. I used gingham paper as background, then layered my leaf border with mirror tape at the top of the card. I cut two wreaths and used my watercolour pencils to paint the doodle roses and leaves on the wreaths. I layered the two wreaths also with mirror tape for dimension. I also cut additional doodle roses and leaves to add on the leaf border for interest. I finished off with bows, small gem stones and a sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

The sentiment

More doodle roses and leaves for interest

    Oh, my goodness, that’s absolutely the cutest wreath and I love how you’ve added color to the flowers. Just darling! Your card is pretty all over with the Freida curve overhead and the gingham in the background. I always enjoy the peek at the inside, too. I simply adore this, Amelia!

    I relish this fresh look to your card. It could be a spring or summer card. I am not sure what your season is now, but I know that is card is delightful and so appealing.
