The Christmas Wreath

This is our Christmas card for 2012.
Anyone who follows me should know by now
 that I love the easel card fold.
It's so easy to make and I just enjoy the way it stands up for display.
All of the cuts are from the Christmas solutions cartridge.
I started with a glittery pink 5.5" embossed circle,
cut the shadow and the wreath in both white and green glitter paper.
The layers are also cut in festive glittery glows.
The bow is popped and is added to the bottom
(instead of the top as shown in the handbook), I added glossy accents
to the bow and to the red berries, and finished the front
by dressing up the holly leaves with my fave MS branch punch.
I chose a festive lime green cardstock for the card base,
added a scalloped cirle mat and popped the bottom image to hols
the card front when folded.
The inside Christmas Wreath poen and personal sentiment
add the finishing touches to this beautiful card.
Here is the finished product as it stands on my foyer table
I will be entering this in the following challenges:
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
