Rustic Wreath for Festive Friday

Guess what? Yesterday I woke up to lightly falling snowflakes, and today a BLANKET of snow greeted me!

It's really pretty, but I need to run errands today. The first snow always brings it's problems too. Everyone forgets how to drive on it and it seems there are always fender benders. People go too fast and misjudge if it's slippery. 
Oh well, guess I better get used to it along with everyone else!

Today I'm entering the challenge at Festive Friday:

Right away I noticed the wreath, of course, after all it is the focal point of the photo! I was going to go in a different direction, but then decided to make a wreath anyway. I think the photo looks kind of rustic, so I made the wreath with a rustic feel.

I'm off to run my errands.....guess I need to dig out gloves and a warmer coat.

Have a great day!

Paper: SU cherry cobbler, old olive, patterned paper
Ink:SU black
