IO Stamps Thursday Challenge-Holiday Greetings

HI!  Are you all ready for the Holiday's yet? For my friends South of the Border, I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!! I'm not remotely ready for Christmas here yet. I'm still working out some health issues, so I've been a little scarce. This has been a crazy six months and i'm hoping that treatment for my latest diagnosis of severe sleep apnea, will leave me feeling more rested. I want my energy back! That is ALL I want for Christmas. To feel that i'm finally on the mend!!!

This week's challenge is to create a Holiday Card.

I had fun building on this fun pop up design that I downloaded for my Silhouette.

I embossed the edges of the white sections with Gold embossing powder, as they were a little stark on their own. The Joy Sentiment is Stamped in Artichoke Ink, while the Christmas Cheer Sentiment is embossed in Gold as well.
I used two different dies for the Wreath as I wanted lots of dimension

On the base I used  the Twig Wreath Die Set and then topped it with Holly Wreath

I hope you like this fun card and will play along in the challenge.
