Sweetest Friend

My sweetest friend has a lot on her mind, I was thinking of her when I made this today. The fabulous sketch is from the Cuttlebug Challenge. The wreath was made from my new EK
success punch-"Rock Fern", I am really glad I got it...I love it. I used a monochromatic patterned green paper for the punches, I thought it would give the wreath more depth. I can't take any credit for thinking of this pretty little wreath. Katie Watson at She's Scrappy made a sweet wreath for her lovely Christmas cottage and you can see it here. I am always inspired by her creations.
The stripey blue paper in the back is Martha Stewart Wood Grains, it is a beautiful paper and I wished it showed more.
