Christmas is coming!

Sweet Poppy Christmas Wreath and an Italian Collection Die

Christmas is coming!
An effective card using three main elements. A die cut shape using an Italian Collection die from Creative Expressions, The beautiful Wreath stencil  from Sweet Poppy Stencils and a free sentiment from a magazine mounted on the circle from the same die set. An embossed background to layer it all on. I did cut the die twice to give it body to take the glitter paste. Still goes out on normal posting so think this may well be one of my batch makes!
