Happy Birthday Wreath & Giveaway

Hi, all! Vladka here today!
Wreaths are one of my favorite motives and so, Build-A-Grapevine Wreath is one of my favorite die. I used it together with Flourish Vine and Hula Owl die. With the last one I cut out just little flowers. All pieces were cut out of kraft paper and colored with Distress Inks, displayed also on this photo.
First I colored the wreath and started with Walnut Stain and continue with Vintage Photo. For this kind of coloring I'm always using Ink Blending Tool. This is my favorite way of coloring. Flourish vine and little flowers were colored the same way.
From red cardstock, I cut out words Happy and Birthday, three times each and glue them on top of each other. This way I get thicker and more interesant die cut. 
For finished touch I also added little bird. Card base is cut out with die and background is made with impression plate.
This is it for today! Have fun!
Be sure to leave a comment on all of our post from 9/8/15- 9/23/15 on the CottageCutz BLOG as we are doing a GIVEAWAY to 1 lucky person! You can WIN 2 of the NEW Halloween dies shown below.
Have fun and Good Luck to all!!!

What a beautiful wreath you have created with the dies.
Love it on Kraft too. And, coloring it up with the distress inks goes so fast
what a great idea. Thanks for sharing.
