What a mix of colors !!

OK I am not totally crazy about this card but promised Juliet I would post my experiment. 
I like the snow effect on the wreath that I used to frame my card even though I am not crazy about the foot or more of snow we had.  I like to take my pics outside if I can.
The chrysanthemum is yellow cardstock with orange ink made from an orange reinker and water.   Pic of the flowers that inspired me to try for the same affect was this gorgeous plant was in Safeway in Colorado.
The aperture is cut with the Cricut cartridge Pagoda card on page 56. 
The frame for the sentiment is an EK Real Estate Sign Large Punch  with the center part from a freebie by and the Just Because is a stamp from SU probably.
Have a Blessed day.

Fabulous - lovely and bright.
Myna, I have just noticed that you live in Calgary, Alberta. My eldest daughter lives there too. (4 years now). She is at Coventry Hills and is a manager at a riding stables. Wow, what a small world eh? We will be going out there in September. We go at least once a year.
I lived and worked in Montreal years ago and a workmate there who I have been in contact with ever sincemoved to Okotoks and runs an equestrian shop.

Hi, Myrna! Well, I think it's beautiful, your chrysanthemum looks gorgeous to me, and I love the colors.

I agree that while the snow around your wreath looks beautiful, there's been just toooo much of the real thing for me too!!! Don't like it at all... lol!!! Oh, how I wish that it would rain... lol!!!

Hugs, my friend!
