My Favorite Christmas Card so Far

Happy Veterans Day to everyone in the U.S. I'd like to thank all the veterans and their families for all the sacrifices they've made to keep our country safe. Special thanks to 2 of my brothers and my sister who all served in the Air Force. Please know how grateful I am to all of you and send my love.
Today I have a card that I like so much I am going to go find as much of this dotted paper as I can and make more of these. It's just gorgeous in person and I know the photo won't do it justice.

Earlier this month I won an individual digital stamp from Beccy's Place and I chose this Aussie Wreath stamp. I am using the pre-colored version on this card but I added a few things to it that make it sparkle and shine. I added dimensional magic to the bow. I think you can see the shine on that. But  I also added Crystal Stickles to each of the centers of the white flowers. I let one coat dry and then I added a second. The result is just stunning. When you pick the card up it just sparkles. I love it. I cut the wreath out with MFT Stitched Ovals. The dotted background paper is from Raspberry Roads Design Christmas Collection. The sentiment is on a green scrap to match the base card stock. I heat embossed the sentiment from Holiday Greetings stamp kit (retired) from Gina K Designs. I die cut the sentiment with MFT Mini Tabs 4 (retired).
I am entering these challenges:

That's it for me today. I am helping with the twins this evening so no crafty time for me. I wish you all a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by.

The first thing I noticed about your card was the big red bow Donna, adding dimensional magic really did the trick. I love the sparkly centres in each of the flannel flowers too, and I think you did an awesome job choosing paper to work with the image. Love it!
