Today's Challenge

Here is my spin on today's challenge. I do not do stuff like this - all the folding and stuff. But, it was kind of fun for a change. And, it was actually pretty easy. I thought it looked a little like a wreath, so I chose a basic grey holly paper and mounted it on a striped "door", mounted on always artichoke. The cute little bird is from my new hero arts set. The card base is creamy caramel layered with cranberry crisp and another bg dp. I stamped the sentiment on creamy caramel with crandberry crisp ink and inked the edges with always artichoke, then punched it with the large oval punch - they need to make those in bigger sizes. Yeah, I have my nesties, but I still love my oval punches. Then I mounted a circle punch of the holly paper on a cranberry crisp label punch and slapped the oval on the top.
