Evergreen Wreath Card

Card standing up
Howdy Crafters - This is my first evergreen wreath card. I viewed a tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers on how to create an evergreen wreath. My card is 6x6 and a bit different than the tutorial since I did not have a MS leaf punch. I used 3 different leaf-type dies to create this wreath. Never-the-less I am satisfied with how it turned out. 
I am having an issue getting a good clear picture as the tag wants to go out of focus- so I have 3 photos - the card standing up, the card laying down, and a close up of the tag sentiment.  -Click HERE to view the tutorial. Thanks for stopping by and be blessed ~ Gail ~
