Christmas is coming...

Hi there! This year I have gone mad on making wreath cards for christmas and instead of using a die today I decided to try making my own wreath out of leaves. I have seen this done quite often around blog land and it looked like fun to me so I really wanted to try it.....turns out these are very easy to make and I feel like I am getting ahead with my christmas cards this year:)
