Noel Wreath

Good Evening:
I am back to share another card with you and yes, it is another Christmas card, lol. Almost everyone is doing Christmas in July so it has been an awesome month for getting a head start on my cards :) I even used 2 Cricut cartridges to make this one card.....amazing for me. The colours are unorthodox as far as Christmas cards go but I think I like it anyway. This card is pretty Clean and Simple, I think anyway.
Here is my card:
Front View

Supplies I used:
Card base and solid cardstock - Recollections
Patterned Paper - DCWV
Wreath - I made the wreath using "Joys of the Season" and "Tis the Season" Cricut cartridges
Tag - made with "Joys of the Season" Cricut Cartridge
Ink - CTMH "Ponderosa Pine"
Gold Cord - Elastic Christmas cord from my stash
