Fall Wreath

I made this card for today's Clean and Simple challenge based upon a Pinterest inspiration photo and today's Technique challenge to layer scallops. Both of these challenges come from Splitcoaststampers.

Obviously, I went with the fall colors in the inspiration photo for my fall wreath. This wreath is a Cheery Lynn Christmas wreath die; I cut it out on Very Vanilla cardstock and then I colored it with Distress Inks in fall colors using a chalk tip applicator. The wreath is popped up with 3D foam squares. My scallops are the layered Big Scalloped Squares I used for the shape of my card.

Supplies I used today:
Stamps: Thanks sentiment in Rubbernecker's Box Word Set; maple leaf (on inside of card) also by Rubbernecker 
Ink: Stampin Up Early Espresso; Ranger Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Crushed Olive, and Fired Brick 
Accessories: Big Scalloped Square Nestabilities, Stampin Up Itty Bitty Banner Framelet die, SU Delicate Designs Textured Impressions embossing folder, 3D Foam squares
