Christmas wreath of peace

Here is another Christmas card (surprise! surprise!), this time based on the sketch given for Christmas Challenges with sketches 2:

The papers are PM Classic Christmas and the sentiments were embossed on textured card with a folder through the cuttlebug and sanded to reveal some of the white core. I rounded corners with a punch - just right for Card and a half's little extra challenge 1 to use embossing folders and punches. The embossing is also for HLSC challenge 26 and Bling it on challenge 4.

The dark lines on the main background paper are red foiled, as is the word 'peace', but that doesn't really show here.

I chose the wreath picture for Christmas inspirations (natalduranteoanotodo) 27: wreath/garland.

This is also for:

Crafty Ann 43: Christmas in June
Irish teddy's: Christmas is coming, Christmas is ...
Jingle belles: all bundled up - lots of layers
Creative CAS for June: winter wonderland
