Thanksgiving Day card for Dies R Us

We have a few new team members for this term and you will be so inspired by them and the others on this amazing team. I am so excited to be one of them. 
I though it was time to get a few Thanksgiving cards done and I did this one for you today.
It is a simple wreath on a panel with fall colored accents.  Let me show you how I did this.
Base is Tomato Soup card stock from Gina K designs.  Then a layer of White card stock,  with the Frantic stamper Elements #16 Stitched Rectangle Frames. I have used this die many times, but this time, I embossed it with the soft pad on my Big Shot.  Then I cut down the panel to a 3 3/4 X 5.  That way you can see all of the stitching on the edges.

To make the wreath, I used two of the stitched circles from Tutti Designs to make the right size for my wreath. 
 Then I die cut some white for the leaves on my wreath from IO Leaves.
 I used Elizabeth Craft dies Hydrangea to cut a lot of little flowers to decorate my wreath. I used scraps of paper in fall colors. Green, gold and red.  You get the idea.
Cut apart the leaves into smaller pieces and glued them on the wreath and added the flowers, and some little gold beads in the middle.
Don't forget to put something on the inside too. 
I finished the card with a gold heat embossed sentiment.
