Simple Halloween Card 1

Simple enough card I made with the leftover piece when I
die cut the word "happy"for the fuzzy scarf wreath project
 that I shared yesterday.

Fuzzy Scarf Wreath

Cleaning out closets last week,
I came across this scarf that belonged
to my daughter several years ago. 
I've hung onto it hoping she may want to 
wear it again at some point, 
she does really like scarves after all.
This type of scarf is no longer trendy, 
and it's too colorful for her style now,
so she'll probably never wear it again.

Sooooo,  I made it into a simple, silly wreath !

I stamped and die cut card stock to create a
decorative banner greeting for it. 

All card stock, inks, stamps and dies were 
from Stampin' Up!

Background piece was Close To Cocoa
stamped with Woodgrain background stamp
and Itty Bitty Backgrounds with Espresso ink.
I also lightly rubbed a Creamy Caramel ink pad across it.

Happy is die cut from Peach Parfait card stock
 Fall is die cut from Ruby Red card stock.

The leaves were made by coloring the Lovely Leaves
 stamp set directly on the rubber with markers.
Stamped onto Very Vanilla card stock, hand cut
then slightly bent for dimension. 

How to make the wreath base:

Foam wreath from Dollar Tree

"Eyelash yarn tube scarf" that was so popular
several years ago

Simply wrap the scarf around the wreath,
pinning in place as needed

Decorate !

I will take this apart at months end,
reusing the banner on a scrapbook page
and probably donating the scarf to a local charity
- unless I find another use for it ;) 

Stop by tomorrow to see the simple Halloween card I made with the leftover piece of card stock from die cutting the word "happy".

Thanks for looking ! 

I'd like to enter my wreath into the following challenges:
SUO Challenges - #183 Autumn Colors
Retro Rubber - #71 Anything Goes (Itty Bitty Backgrounds is 20 years old ! I'm not sure of the age of              the Woodgrain stamp, maybe 7 years old ?)
Use Your Stuff - #279 Fall Is In The Air
Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes Sept 12th

My wreath was a top pick at Use Your Stuff
