Season's Greetings

 It's Christmas Cards week over at SP and Company!

I really liked the woodgrain effect I got from my last card that I had to make more using the Vintage October: Wooden it Be Nice set. I was hoping this panel would emulate a front door:

To make the wreath I used Poppy Field Summer. Yep, you read that right! I used the stamp shown below and only inked up the leafy portion in green as you can see below (never mind the stained flowers - there is not really ink on them).
I just repeatedly stamped that section in green while I slowly rotated my cardstock panel until I had a circle. I added some red glittter glue and ribbon and called it a wreath!

For the sentiment I used Ultimate Sentiments II and Mix n Match Sentiments Basics to create the banner.

I now have my first Christmas card of the year! I can almost smell the evergreen and hear the carols...
