Tiny Leaves Wreath - GDP004

I'm excited to share this card with you today!  Over at the Global Design Project site, the challenge is to case the very talented Louise Sharp.  I remember pinning this card last year - it is so stunning!!!  So when this week's challenge was to case the designer (great idea btw!), I thought, "how do you case this and make it any better??"  Well, I can only try to make something my own and hope to inspire some of my readers!
 
 
The reason I pinned the card last year was because of the color combo.  I love the gold and neutrals and wanted to "case" that part for sure.  I also loved the simplicity of the look though I'm sure it wasn't quick to make.
 
And neither was this...
 
 
If you're wondering where all the leaves came from, take a closer look at the new Square Pillow Box thinlits.  I ran 5 different colors through 3x each giving me 45. I added a extra on the inside too.
 
 
 
I love the way it turned out!  I hope I made Louise proud - big shoes to fill!
 
My tips would be, 1-faintly draw a circle to give your wreath a nice shape as you glue down the leaves and 2-buy the adhesive remover!  I had a lot of sticky residue around the leaves from my Tombow glue and I am always amazed how much that magical square removes!
 
 
I will be back later in the week with more holiday inspiration.  I need the rain to hold off some to take more pictures.  (These pictures were taken in between rain showers!)
 
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Um, WOW, yes just WOW! Holly this is just SO beautiful and I love every part so much that I can't even find a 'best' part to comment on! Totally love the double bow and strands coming down. I think you totally achieved the 'looks simple but was a labour of love' card! Thanks so much for playing along with us at GDP again :)

  2. Gorgeous, Holly! The patience and time you took to glue down these leaves has paid off! I, too, love the small bands of glimmer paper down the sides of your front panel. Gorgeous! Thank you so much for playing along with this week's Global Design Project "case the designer" challenge!
