Color Combo for TTS24

It's time for another challenge at 'Tis The Season and we have a color combo this week. As a very traditional person who loves her red and greens this was a tough one for me and I had to really think about it. So what are the colors? They are black, turquoise and silver!

I grabbed one of the new sets that SU is releasing on Friday, it's called Wondrous Wreath. I stamped the first part in Bermuda Bay and then the second stamp, of berries, was stamped in Metallic Silver. I took the Silver Dazzling Details and put this on top of the stamped berries. The piece was set aside to dry and I worked on the rest of the card.

The "joy" sentiment is part of the Wonderful Wreath Framelits that can be bought as a bundle with this wreath set. I cut it out in Silver glimmer paper and after my wreath dried I popped the sentiment up with dimensionals across the wreath.

My card base is Basic Black and the 2 smaller panels are Basic Black embossed with the Pretty Print TIEF layered on Bermuda Bay. The wreath was then popped up on dimensionals on the embossed panel. It's a very simple card but packs a visual punch in person!

My layout came from the current challenge over at The Paper Players, which is a great sketch. I wanted to do something a little different with my wreath and this sketch was perfect for the thoughts swimming around in my head!
