Christmas Wreath

We've made it half way through the week. This weekend I am helping at a Girl Scout Science Day. The girls come to Indiana University to work with scientist and women students to learn about math & science. Besides helping with registration and the snack room, I do a training for additional math & science ideas that the leaders can do with their girls after they leave the event. I am working on my handouts and getting ready for the day. But it cuts into my crafting time. LOL!
Tonight I have another Christmas themed card. Beccy challenged us to use a wreath on out card so I went looking for a die cut wreath. It turns out that I have two wreath dies. I wouldn't have guessed that. So I used one of these to start my Christmas thank you cards. We always send thank yous after Christmas.

Most of this card is done with die cuts. Not my typical card but I really like this one. I cut 3 Poppy Stamps Breezy Wreaths in 3 different colors of green. The red card stock is cut from Spellbinder's Heart Pendant. The plaid background paper is from Authentique. The "thanks" is from My Favorite Things Many Thanks dies. I made 5 copies if the Thanks word and then glued them together to pop it up off the card. The word Christmas was stamped and embossed in black and cut with Quickcutz Tags.
I am entering these challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope the rest of your week is awesome.

I love it Donna, well done! I love the way you layered the three different shades of green together, it gives your wreath lots of depth. I also like the plaid background paper... very traditional.
Cheers,
Beccy
