The Card Concept #41

It is time for another challenge here at

We had so many beautiful entries this last challenge! So much talent! Wow!
So I hope you will join us again with this fabulous
photo inspiration:

I was inspired by the beautiful neutral colors and the wood grains.
Isn't this photo gorgeous!!!

Here is my card:

Sorry, my photo is a little dark! 
I don't know if you heard, but it has been nothing but gray skies and rain here in Charlotte NC for the last 12 dayswhich included MORE rain this past weekend from TWO storm systems, which included Hurricane Joaquin!!!! Only thing good about it was being in my craft room and watching football!!!
(Go Panthers!)

I used my NBUS Twig Wreath (PTI) stamp and matching die cuts to make my card. I have had this set for about a month and I hadn't had a chance to ink it up. I am going to LOVE this set!!!

I hope you get a chance to play with us here at

This card is fabulous. All the layers work so well and that wreath is gorgeous. Also like how you have framed the wreath with the wood embossing.
