Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Welcome Home

Had a bit of time to play in my craft room tonight and decided to play along with the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Welcome Home.  Here is the inspiration graphic:

I love wreaths, turquoise, and old barn wood and when I saw this photo I fell in love.  I have also had my new Rustic Wreath stamp and die set sitting on my crafting table awaiting time to play hence this card was born tonight in my crafty studio:
I used several stamp sets to create this card including:
Love Lives Here Holiday - for the sentiment; Mat Stack 1 collection - for that little acorn branch under the sentiment; Lovely Layers for the leaves on the wreath; And the die from Rustic Wreath cut from three different papers and wrapped in jute twine to create the wreath itself.  Also in keeping with it being an outdoor wreath I added some Aleene's Glitter Snow which gives it that frosty look with just a wee touch of snowy sparkle!

Thanks for taking a look at my card! I sure enjoyed the time spent making it this evening!
