Challenge #190 - Wreaths

We see wreaths everywhere at this time of year - wreaths on peoples doors, advent wreaths on tables, surrounding candles. But where did the wreath originate. There are conflicting stories. One claims that it is from an old English word meaning to twist. Another account claims that the Romans placed them on doors to signify victory. The Greeks used laurel wreaths to award the victors in the Olympic games. And Christians used it to symbolize Christ. Whatever the meaning, they are lovely to look at and we have a sketch of one for you this time. So here it is:

What did the Design Team include in their wreaths?:

Here are some guidelines for the challenge:

  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging   project that fits the challenge.
  • Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch and to substitute one   shape for another but we must still be able to see the sketch   in your finished submission.
  • Please include the challenge graphic and link back to the   challenge in your blog post. Turn off word verification so we   can send you lots of feedback. Make sure you link the post not the whole blog to the Linky. Use #AYSI189 when uploading to a public gallery.
  • If you’re unsure about ‘the rules’, check the details under the Challenge Guidelines tab.
