PP608 Seashell Wreath

Happy Sunday, everyone!  Joanne is our Paper Players hostess this week and since it IS still technically summer, I used the colors from her color challenge to create a seashell wreath!  First, let's see the colors she chose:


I had the Cottage Wreaths bundle on my desk since I had been playing with it and making samples for my upcoming club, so I thought it would be fun to use some of the pastel colors to create a here we go:

I stamped the leafy wreath in Mint Macaron and beachy-themed elements in Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Petal Pink, diecutting the wreath and fussy-cutting the elements.  I added a Linen Thread bow too:

It all went on a Basic White card base on which I stamped a (very old) cheesecloth image in Sahara Sand, then added the sentiment in Crumb Cake:

My final addition was a scattering of Mint Macaron pearls and a few little speckles of "sand"!  A nice finish to the summer season, right?  I hope you'll find some inspiration from Joanne's colors...she has some Regals in there as well, so no need to focus only on the Subtles!  Can't wait to see what you create...share it with us at the Paper Players blog!  Thanks for popping in!

A last little glimpse of hubby's favorite summer beach pasttime:

Unfortunately, this storm front was making itself known and the fishing had to be cut short!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Oh man, oh man! I'd just love to have one of those cheesecloth stamps - if you ever run across another.
What a beautiful backdrop for your sweet beachy wreath, LeAnne.
Hope John caught something before he had to run for cover!

This is such a clever way to use this wreath set LeAnne - your shell-adorned wreath is so summery and I love the added detail of the cheesecloth background too. Perfect use of those summer subtles!

I am so happy to see you summery card, LeAnne! It's sweet as could be, what a great idea to have a beachy-themed wreath. I thought that cheesecloth was REAL, it looks so pretty! Yes, it's old, I still have mine. It's a keeper!

Everyone else has already talked about the cheesecloth background, but it really is perfect for your card! And I love the seashells on your wreath, great use of the colors.
