Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge!

It appears it's the week for tags...at least posting two in one weekend is a record for me! I am much more comfortable when the tag is ATTACHED to the front of a card or 3D project.  Which means this sketch at Skipping Stones was perfect!
And simple enough! As a matter of fact, I purposely chose to leave off a sentiment so that I may use it for one of the many occasions I have coming up.  I have several friends with Fall birthdays, two wedding Anniversaries, and several folks I just plain miss on a regular basis!

This wreath from Skipping Stones is so versatile!
You can color it up with Fall or Christmas colors, and I noticed today, that it has tiny groups of what could be flowers for a Spring or Summer wreath!  
Yes, I'll be inking this one up a lot!
I don't know if you can tell, but the leaves from the same set were embossed in gold onto the punched trim to add just a bit of sparkle.

Also, on a sad note, one of my favorite and very generous Challenge Blogs is going "off the air" and this is their last challenge!
So, this card is being submitted at Easy Craft Projects Challenges.  I will miss checking out all of their cool DT projects and the other entries!
