ODBDSLC #179 - Holiday (Christmas or Thanksgiving Card)

Happy Tuesday everyone!! The Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge is to create a Holiday card, please join us here for all of the details.

I wanted another chance to to use this beautiful wreath, this time I embossed it in silver on light blue and layered a greeting on top with a couple circle dies underneath as well as a Cheery Lynn doily. The Fanciful Flourish was cut in two and placed underneath. The background was reverse embossed by inking the embossing folder and I added a seam binding ribbon bow with a crystal button.
