Flower Wreath

Hello dear blog friends,

This week is photo inspiration time at Sugar Creek Holllow. The challenge is to use the elements or the colours or both in the photo to create a vintage, shabby or primitive project. I really like the intense colours of  purple, green and blue although I had to dig  deep in my stash to find the right match. For the first time I also used a vintage colourized photo on my card. This lovely lady is from Magic Moonlight Free Images. I added glitter to the flower wreath in her hair and on the brooch to let it pop. Hope you like my take on the photo inspiration challenge.  The Design Team would love to see your creative project this week at Sugar Creek Hollow.
