I just love the images in the Brights Hopes Stamp Set! I have used them quite a bit this season. They coordinate well with many designer papers and look great heat embossed.
I created this card for the Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge. The sketch lent itself well to a clean and simple card. I substituted a wreath for the flower, and after that the rest of the card just came together (sort of!). I botched up the wreath three times before I got it right. It was very simple to do, but apparently I don't stamp well on only a few hours of sleep!
The wreath was heat embossed with Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder and then cut out with a 2 1/2" circle punch. Pearls are the perfect decoration. Do you like this color combination as much as I do?
