Just us Girls Challenge and Simon Says Wednesday

Since I am making Christmas cards, this challenge is a must to enter.  A wreath is so appropriate for a Christmas card.  So I started looking through my stash for a wreath.  I bet you guessed it, no Christmas wreath.  I have flower ones but no evergreen ones.  Well, I had this cute as a button snowman, that would look perfect peeking out from a Christmas wreath.  What do to!!! Yep, make one.  Oh, sure, how many times have you said that?  "I can make it!"  Will on my second try,  I got it.
                                                                     Here it is!


 I used a Stampin Up, leaf set with GKD inks.  Grass Green, Fresh Asparagus and Dark Sage. 
I stamped around in a circle and put the snowman in the center.  I really don't know where he came from, but he is old.  The green DP is from GKD as well as the Ivory base.  The greeting in embossed with silver on to the banner.  Did you notice the snow on the wreath and his hat?  That is White Flower Soft.  There is red Wink of Stella on his scarf.
I am entering this card in the :
