Merry Monday #263 and Loll's Splash Watercolor Challenge

My phone line is down, I have DSL internet service and it won't be repaired until Monday so I'm sitting here in the church typing up my blog so I can get my card to challenges on time.  First up is for Merry Monday.
After zooming in, the first thing that caught my attention in the photo was the plaid and since I had just gotten my stamp from Concord and 9th I wanted to use it.  I also used my NBUS Sunny Studio Poinsettia.

I just had to make a card for Loll's challenge using her splash watercolor technique.  I've done it before but it makes such great backgrounds and I needed one for my  NBUS wreath from SOA.  For a link to her video tutorial, go to Loll's blog.

 The wreath was embossed in gold and the word die and ribbon are teal glitter paper.

I'm keeping it short and sweet today because I'm also at the church to decorate the altar for All Saint's Sunday and the friend helping me is here.

Thanks for dropping by and may you never lose your internet.
