The message is from the Fabulous Four....I love the size of those messages...I find myself using them a lot!
When I first looked at this designer paper from Confetti Celebration, I thought, Whoa!...how am I going to use that design? It could be a bit too much! But now, I think it fits right in with the sunburst...what do you think?
These are the products I used for this project:

I love Wondrous Wreath...the "not just for Christmas" wreath! I know I'll be having fun making Spring and Summer wreaths, too!
But Autumn is the subject of this card...with a message from the Project Life photopolymer stamp set, Day to Day.
I actually used all the colors in the wreath, although it might be hard to tell because I colored with the baby wipe technique. Laying down a baby wipe in an empty clear-mount stamp case (idea from Sandy McIver), I dripped all the colors in the form of re-inkers onto the baby wipe so they pretty much blend into one another, but not completely. Press the stamp into the baby wipe and then stamp on card stock.
The effect is a bit water-color-ish.....
Susan Suggests: While the colors are in the case and still damp, try to find some other stamp sets you'd like to use with the colors you've chosen...go ahead, stamp and save until you are ready to use.
The Woodgrain TIEF gave the banner directly under the wreath some texture and I finished off the bow (from Wondrous Wreath) with some Linen Thread and a Candy Dot!
I just have to mention how easy this stamp set is to cut out with the matching Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies because of how Stampin' Up! configured the framelits. Bravo to SU!

Because of the nature of the card, I decided to use Back to Black designer paper...just to give it a slightly formal look.
This is the first time I've used the stamp set, Cheers to Love....thought this sketch would accommodate the Mr. and Mrs. nicely! The flagged message is from Project Life Remember This and I used the flag from the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits (Holiday Catalog)...the flag is one of the "trims" in the set, but only one end is flagged so I cut the other end into a second flag!
The only part of the sketch that I changed was the placement of the Candy Dots...just thought I liked them better in the lower corner! .....Debated over this for some time! Any opinions?
