Have A Holly Jolly Christmas

I had real fun making this card,
despite all the fiddly cutting and sticking.
Although, I admit, by the time I was finished
me, the desk, the floor and the dog were covered with Glamour Dust :-)

 I used the fab digi Christmas wreath from Bird's Cards,
printing it out in 2 shades of green card.
I cut out some of the leaves from the lighter green, sprinkled them with glamour dust
and added red gems, as berries. 
Then attached them to the darker base with foam pads.
I also added some punched, glittered snow flakes and tiny silver stars.

I finished the wreath with a satin bow and red jingle bells.
