Flurry of Wishes - Neutral Theme

How exciting, "Case the Designer" is the theme for the Global Design Project this week.

If you are not famililar with this type of challenge, you basically get to choose what inspires you on the card provided and go from there, eg Colour, Stamp Set, Layout, Theme etc

There are so many elements to choose from, I decided on Colour for my inspiration/challenge as Neutral tones - something I haven't done before, but with the familiarity of the Wondrous Wreath stamp set:

Here is the card that Louise Sharp provided for our inspiration this week:

I purchased the Wondrous Wreath Bundle as my first SU Bundle - I love it.  It is so easy to use, and I had never thought of using neutral tones until I saw Louise's card.

I made a card similar to this several weeks ago in frosty Christmas colours; but WOW, I was blown away by how this turned out in Neutrals.

I opted for gold embossing on the berries and  added some gold cording trim to suspend the wreath from the circles cut with thinlets and a little bell for the embellishment.

Thank you Louise, now I have another colour combo for this beautiful Bundle set!

    WOW, this is amazing and so clever how you have it hanging, I would never have thought of doing that! That's why I love these challenges, so many ideas and inspiration from just one card. Thank you so much for playing along to our Global Design Project this week. xo

  2. Thank you Louise - I love the design of your Blog too, I have been there on many occasions when Linking to see your lovely cards, I always say "you can never have too much Pink"!

  3. Oh my that little bell is adorable, you smashed the sketch Sue, I adore your card and did not believe that Louise's card could be any cuter but you just pushed it to the next level!!

  4. Hi Sue, what a lovely card - I like the hanging wreath and the tiny bell gives it a very special look.
