CTD268- glad tidings!!

Happy Happy Wednesday... I always say that don't I!! Love the colors/image that is being brought to us by Tammy this week. Fun colors and sooooo many possibilities!!


 Okay I saw a bunch of color and viney twines!?!


Started with barnwood paper (I think from MME) and sponged pool party over the gray. Then I die cut a Memory Box die but, only parts of it all the way through the die. So there are some areas popped out and some that are embossed. Rounded the corners and sponged with SU basic gray all around. To add the colors I sponged them on some of the "popped up" pieces and added rhinestones all over. Added a sentiment from Verve and a seam binding bow.

Here's a close up to see all those rhinestones....

I love how you used such soft touches of the colors this week, Vickie! That wreath is awesome and even more so on top of the beautiful woodgrain background!

Oh you know I'm a sucker for a fancy die Vickie - love what you did with this - the gems and the inked up edges are gorgeous! Great contrast against the wood grain print!
