Dahlia Christmas wreath

Hello crafty friends! I'm popping in today with a Christmas card. I had almost forgotten about this month's Rudolph Days challenge but remembered just in time. And there's also a new to me challenge that I found through Darnell's blog, Christmas 24. Another fun challenge to encourage us to create our Christmas cards all year long.

I created my wreath using NBUS Dahlia turnabout stamp by Concord & 9th and several colours of CP ink.(Grass skirt, Eucalyptus, Spruce and Seafoam). I will need to practice a little more to get the dahlia/wreath lined out to perfection, but I don't think the recipient will notice it's slightly off this time.

I die cut my panel using a SSS stitched rectangle (Bundele of stitched shapes) and popped up the stamped and die cut sentiment (SSS Christmas word mix 1) with a gold thread nest and foam tape.
