Easter Wreath on Weathered Wood

Happy Friday!  Are you ready for the weekend?  I know I am.  My card today is one that I created for an inspiration challenge at Fusion Challenge blog.

For the challenge you can use the photo as inspiration or the sketch or both.  When I saw the wreath on the door I knew that I had a wreath die that would be PERFECT.  Here is the challenge:
Not only would the die be perfect, but I have a paper stack of "wood" papers!  I did not want my card to be dark so I picked a light color weathered wood paper and cut it to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches (A2).

I love the color combination of yellow, lavender and purple.  It reminds me of Spring.  I cut the flowers from various shades of those colors and the foliage from two shades of green and Crumb Cake which matches the wood tone on the distressed wood panel.

I decided to use this sentiment since it could stretch across the card and I thought the style went well with the die.  I cut two strips of Crumb Cake cardstock and heat embossed "Happy Easter" in both white and a metallic purple.  I wasn't sure which one I would like better.
I decided on the purple - it really does have a nice glow in person.
I popped one flower off the card using a foam dot then added iridescent sequins that change from yellow to purple.  It really adds some sparkle to the wreath - almost like little berries!
I hope you enjoyed today's card.  The new Fresh Spring Floral die is very versatile - this could easily be made a thank you, birthday or thinking of you card just by changing the sentiments.  And by changing the colors you can match it to the seasons or your recipient's personal tastes.
