EtsyInspired Inspiration challenge #115, Stampin B's #86

I am really so glad to get my card uploaded this morning. Between leaving my cameras out of town last weekend (ugh), going away for Thanksgiving, leaving in about two hours for an out of town college football game, I managed to get a card made, get my cameras back, and get uploaded Whew! What a week.

I made my card for the EtsyInspired challenge #115: You are to be inspired by the Qeen of Tarts Cakes/Queen of Tarts Wafers Etsy Store and was I ever inspired. Yummy goodies galore! The team would also like for you to use squares/inchies, if possible.  I chose this wreath from the cakes as my inspiration.
I am using taglet squares from Flower Soft. I have Flower Soft scattered all over the floor of my craft room. I really thought I was keeping it really clean but the floor is looking a bit green and red in places. I guess that is what the vacuum is for. LOL I stamped  the letters in each square to spell out Joy. Then, I added added a yummy red velvet ribbon.

I'm adding this card also to the Stampin B's Design Team challenge #86. Faith challenged us to make a holiday card.

Recipe:
Stamp: American Crafts clear stamps-alphabet
Paper: Stampin'Up! Always Artichoke, PTI white cardstock
Ink: Stampin'Up! Always Artichoke
Accessories: Flower Soft Holly and Ivy Taglets, Celebrate It red velvet ribbon, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder,  Flower Soft colors-Christmas Green, Shamrock Green, and Poppy Red

Now this is a very clever interpretation of the challenge and I love it! I really like how each wreath is slightly different, and that pretty red ribbon ties them all together perfectly!
I hope your weekend is worry and hassle-free and do enjoy that football game!
