Color Cue {8} Challenge

It's time for another Color Cue Challenge....this one using some fantastic colors!
I pulled out my new Wreath for all Seasons set from PTI.  This set is fantastic....it lends itself
to soo many possibilities for every season.  I decided to use it as a Christmas wreath and
get one of my Christmas cards out of the way!


I have to give a "shout out" to my good friend Jen, at Jen's Ink Spot,  for the inspiration for the "berries" on
my card.  She was chosen as one of the Wplus9 Color Cue "picks" last time around
for her fabulous tree card that she did knots on.  Check it out here...one beautiful card!


Do you know how long it's been since I'd done French Knots? 
Forever......Like 25 years ago forever.  I can still remember my Grandma
teaching me this when I was younger.  I will be sure to use this on my cardmaking again soon!
I'd forgotten how fun it is to do!


Why don't you come try this challenge out too?  When you do, make sure and link up!

As always, thanks so much for taking time to leave comments!  They are so fun to read!
Have a beautiful day!

{Merry Christmas}

Oh, those french knots are so cute! I am afraid to try them, though, cause I am not good with things like that...lol. The challenge colors look great here and it is a fabulous layout.

What a great, Christmas card! All I could see with this Color Cue was fall. Although, it may be because it feels an awful lot like fall in my neck of the woods. Just beautiful!
