Spring Wreath with Jay Gee's

I have a million things I should be doing. So I made a card. Yes, I do need to make some cards, but I didn't NEED to make this one. But here it is:
and I kinda love it.
This is the first time I've played along with Jay Gee's challenge. When I saw it I knew I wanted to play- and here it is, only a little over a day left in a month long challenge!

This color combo makes me happy! I've got friends moving into their first house as I type- thought this would be a fun card for them....

PTI aqua mist & white cardstock. Spellbinders die. PTI wreath stamps. Ink is versafine brown, and versamagic aquatic splash, brilliance sunflower yellow (yes, I did have to go look those up!). I also used fresh snow for the sentiment & embossed it with powder that I kid you not- is probably over 20 years old! (I started stamping as an infant- very doogie houser, I know) Those pearls are from a LSS (ben franklins). You may have suspected the ribbon is May Arts. You are so right! :) I believe it is the only yellow ribbon I have- and it also makes me happy!
Here's the inspiration photo- gorgeous, right?

Thanks so much for stopping by- now back to the million things I NEED to be doing! (I really wish one of them was sleeping!)
