We've got some pretty colors  for you this week at colourQ!  The inspiration photo made me think of a long forgotten wreath stamp set that I had in my stash.

I found one lonely sheet of Lovely Lilac cardstock in my stash so I used that for my card base. It looks blue in the photo but I promise that it's not.  Unfortunately I didn't have the same ink so I had to substitute another ink for the berries on the wreath and it's not even remotely the same color purple. I hope it doesn't look too weird!
The sketch challenge at Just Add Ink was perfect for this wreath.  My wreath doesn't hang over the edge but I like it all the same!  I hope the ladies there will forgive me!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to check out our challenge at colourQ!  My lovely teamies have created some beautiful cards for you to see this week.  I hope you can join us in the gallery!
