Oak wreath

I thought this little oak wreath from D2D was too sweet to pass up, but so did all my stamping blogger friends. After a while, the challenge was not about what I could do with the image, but could I do that didn't look exactly like what everyone else was doing.

I used the Background Whimsy technique on the focal image. I also used a few elements that have been sitting in my stash for years untouched, like these typewriter key stickers, and my black Waxy Flax. There's no brown on my card, either.
I'm entering this in the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, Tueday Throwdown, Paper Play, and the Digital Tuesday challenge.

Oh, I so agree that designing a card is the hardest part of making them. It takes me soooo long. What I should do is make more than one with a design, LOL. Than it will seem worth the time put into it, LOL.

You did a fantstic job on the card. Love the image. Thank you for entering it in this weeks Digital Tuesday Challenge.
