Christmas Wreath

Hi everyone,  I got woken up this morning by our youngest daughter who had gone to a local market and locked her keys and phone in the boot of her car. I ended up having to skip church to go and pick her up, drive to where her boyfriend works to grab the spare key and then back to the markets to get into the car. As I would have been rather late and missed getting into the choir, I decided to tack along with her and look through the stalls and grab a bit of fruit and veg as well. After that, we parted company and I came home (after a quick stop at a craft store on the way to buy an adhesive tape roller) Hubby had gone off with one of our sons to the country to take a car up to store away for the time being and the other two sons were here still sleeping. One had got home well after 5 a.m. after being out at our future SIL's bucks night. I don't think they got up to much as most of the guys had already gone home. He did tell me he rode a mechanical bull and LOL, didn't last long on it.
Our two youngest grandchildren are staying overnight and Layla has already started a card. She started asking me about 30 mins after arriving if she could make one. They are both tucked up in bed fast asleep!!!
I decided I had better make another Christmas card for my stash as it won't be long now and I will have to start sending some out to family and friends.

Here is what I came up with.......

Front of card...

 Inside of card...
SU Wild Wasabi cardstock for the cardbase
DP's both from My Mind's Eye ~ Snowed In - Winter papers (a freebie with a magazine)
Image from SU ~ Welcome Christmas
Sentiment from SU ~ Petite Pairs
SU Brilliant Blue inkpad
Nestie Dies - Standard Circles - Large and Small
Die-namics Die - Mini Doily Circles
Green ribbon from stash (recent purchase from the craft fair)
Liquid Pearls

I am entering this into the following challenges:
