Muted tones is our them for this month's challenge at A Blog Named Hero.  I chose some soft green with pale pink to make a Christmas card in non-traditional colors.

The wreath was die cut and then inlaid into the gray/green background with another layer of wreath added.  A few crystal drops, a silk bow and the sentiment completed my card.  Both the wreath and the sentiment are no longer available from Hero Arts but these are similar here and here.

There is still time to enter your "muted tones" card at A Blog Named Hero and have a chance at two gift card prizes from Hero Arts. 

Thanks for visiting today and wishing you all a joyous and peaceful Christmas.

Thanksgiving will be here in a few weeks and I know I have so many things to be thankful for - am sure you do too.  

I used a wreath die from a My Monthly Hero kit (no longer available but this wreath die and stamps are practically the same), die cut it from four colors and layered them together. I simply watercolored a piece of watercolor cs with browns and grays and then cut out the little leaves from it.  Added the sentiment, a little twine bow, some gold Nuvo drops and done!

A new challenge  begins tomorrow so be sure to hop over to A Blog Named Hero to check it out.

The colors on my card fit the Fusion challenge for this week.

I am also entering this in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge where the theme is thanksgiving.

Many thanks for visiting my blog - I am so thankful for my blog friends.
