Halloween Wreath ~ TSOC

Hello stamplings~  Today's card is super cute!  I made it for the new challenge starting up over at The Sisterhood of Crafters.  The theme for this challenge is "Wreath".  Well, since it's almost Halloween I had to go in that direction...

 And at first this challenge had me stumped but finally inspiration started trickling in and this is what I ended up with.

I started with the wreath, using Taylored Expressions Door to Door Decor and cutting the wreath out of black cardstock, twice.  I layered the wreath and fluffed up the sprigs and mounted it to this Barn Door from Marianne Designs.  I added a Halloween sticker from Simple Stories to the center of the wreath and some orange stickles for berries.  It looks like the pumpkin is looking through a peephole in the door.  So cute!

I wanted a brick façade for the door so I used Stampin' Up! Brick & Mortar EF, but when I ran it through the machine, somehow the paper moved and it went wonky!  I was going to throw it away abut after seeing what it looked like, I kind of like the wonky bricks.  A happy accident!  I added concrete steps using grey cardstock and gave them the look of concrete by sponging on some Iced Spruce DOX ink.  I tucked in a few more wreath sprigs to the concrete steps and added a sentiment sticker from the Simple Stories Halloween pack.  

Please stop by The Sisterhood of Crafters blog to see the other amazing inspiration from my talented team mates and join in on the fun!  

Thanks for stopping by!
