CHNC challenge 551

This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 551 -  please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of  'use a die cut or punch'.

I cut into a green card blank with Die'sire create-a-card traditional wreath dies creating an aperture and adding the inside piece to red card, adding the sentiment circle, the Season's Greetings cut from some Lisa Horton sentiments and the poinsettias.
