Grateful Thanks - Colour Q and Paper Smooches Challenges

I have two cards to share tonight.  Two cards for two challenges. 

First up is a card I created for Colour Q challenge.  I used Stampin' Up inks to watercolor, which I don't do often.  But it works!  The color palette . . .

Here is my card . . .

And my sequins matched up pretty nicely too.  I love it when things come together.  

And then next up is a little something for Paper Smooches Challenge.  I've not participated in one for a while, and I started out creating a wreath using one of their stamps sets.  I was inspired by their inspiration photo . . .

But it went in a different direction, as you'll see below.  

I was inspired to cut pieces of my wreath with a circle punch, and then piece it all back together.  If you look closely, I did match up the pieces.  It's tough to tell . . . but I swear.  It was puzzle time for me.  

I hope you find some time to create today.
