I took the sketch very literally and made it quite simple. I also used the color challenge from Splitcoast yesterday: Real Red, Old Olive & River Rock. I haven't used River Rock in a while and I like it. This time I made my three panels look like a door by using the Woodgrain background and sponging the edges for some depth.
My wreath was fun to do. I've seen somehing similar before, using the two-step Bird punch branch to make it. I started with a circle frame made by first punching a 1 1/4" circle in some scrap Old Olive, then punching around it (on the scrap still, the circle is laying on your table by now) with the 1 3/4" circle punch. Then I covered the whole thing with tape runner and started layering the leaves on. Finally I added the three red rhinestone brads and the ribbon.
What do you think of the antique brad doorknob?? Wouldn't you just love to have doorknobs like that in your house?! I would! Anyway, the sentiment on the outside is from the Home For Christmas stamp set. On the inside I just stamped Season's Greetings.
