Happy Holidays - Simple Wreath

Today the Serendipity Design Team was given a photo to draw
 inspiration from to base today's designs on. Serendipity is running a special right now...
Buy three, get the fourth free! This special runs through November 7, 2012 at Serendipity's Online Store.

So... as usual I may have strayed from the photo a bit and my thinking is that the pic is of a holiday decoration and I used a wreath, also a holiday decoration, in my card. 
Check out the other post's from the team... I'm sure they were more on target with their themes!

 I love this Bay Leaf Wreath! It looks like it would take a little while to color, but it actually goes pretty quick! I kept is simple and easy with a few easy layers using the Perfect Layers Rulers.
 Here are the three greens I started with to color the leaves.
 Here are the other Copics I used to finish it up.

I added a small Happy Holidays sentiment on the inside of the card with a leftover piece of the DP. Finished card is 5" square.
