Homespun Wreath

Last night was our craft night, and after tea and home made chocolate and ginger macaroons (recipe here, on my baking blog), we all made cards using my new Spellbinders Build a Wreath dies.  Mum and I treated ourselves to a set each when we spotted them in our local craft shop at the weekend, I'd been fancying this set since it's release, and I have to say I'm not disappointed, expect to see lots more wreath cards from me.
 I've kept the layout simple to really showcase the wreath, and I've gone for a homespun look with these Papermania Christmas in the Country papers.  The only embellishments I've used are some Card Candi and red gems on the wreath, making this card suitable for a man.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Robyn's Fetish - #169 - Christmas in July
Cards for Men - #15 - Christmas in July
Fairy Tale - #72 - Christmas in July
Bearly Mine - #96 - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments - Bling it On
Papertake - Die-ing for a Punch
(PIN)spirational - #67 - inspiration photo, I used the Xmas theme and wreath shape
