Another card for the sketch challenge

I got this stamp in a bundle that I bought off of Craigslist. I said it wasn't my style, but I realized it is perfect for the JJSC003 sketch challenge!

It's a very simple card, I couldn't decide on any embellishments to add, so I went without. I have a bunch of square envelopes, so I let that determine the size of the card. Once I stamped the wreath, I coloured it with pencil crayons. I really want to either:

1) Cover the fruit in glitter, to make it "sugared" fruit
2) Cover the fruit in Crystal Effects, to make it glossy

I decided to leave this absolutely plain, and will make both #1 and #2 in the future!

The "Welcome" sentiment seemed to fit well. I thought this would make a great "welcome to the neighbourhood" card.
