Moonlight Blog Hop

 Thank you for joining us on our “Take a Walk in the Moonlight” Blog Hop.  We have a fabulous path for you to follow as you take your walk in the moonlight with us as we feature Close to My Heart’s Moonlight paper pack.

If you just happened to come to this blog, you should begin your walk at the  beginning at Lucy's blog.

My project is a 6 x 6 card. Along with the Moonlight paper, I used a fun faux stitching technique you can find on Melinda Everitt's blog. I think it looks so real! The wreath is stamped in Cocoa, Autumn Terracotta, Honey, and Holiday Red then hand cut & popped with foam tape. I used a fairly straight stem stamp & then bent it on a wide block to get the hanging effect. The sentiment is from the same set as the wreath.


Here's a better look at the faux stitching...

The colors swirl together to form the wreath...

Materials: Autumn Terracotta CS & Moonlight paper,
                   Inks - Autumn Terracotta, Honey, Cocoa, Holiday Red, & Smokey Plum
                   Stamp sets - Remarkable Wreath(C1473) & Sweetheart(B1370-retired)
                    Bling - Brown & Tan Sparkles(Z1753) & Licorice Opaque Gems(Z1335)

The next stop on your moonlight walk is Julia.
