JUST US GIRLS #265 Word Week - Wreaths

Hello crafty peeps! Are you all on candy overload from eating all that Halloween candy last night?! LOL!

We have a fun new challenge at JUST US GIRLS! Lisa is hosting this week and she picked the word Wreaths! Love it! Here's the card I came up with:

 and the inside of my card:

I made a door! LOL! First time doing that, I think. I cut my card base and panels from brick colored card stock, then did some second generation stamping with a wood grain stamp for a bit of texture. I die cut the wreath twice from two different green DP scraps. Heat embossed the sentiments with champagne EP. After assembling everything together, I added the sequins and the metal dot for the door knob and I was done! What a fun way to use up those itty bits of scraps - I might make a few more like this!

Now it's your turn. simply create something with a wreath and link it up at Just Us Girls! While there, don't forget to visit the blogs of my teammies, and our new guest designer, Tajanna, and leave them some love. We can't wait to see what you create! Remember, if you are picked as the Chic of the Week during November, you will be in the running for our Guest Designer for the month of January! Good Luck, and thanks for stopping by!
