A country Christmas wreath

I can't believe it's August, and I'm making a Christmas card, but there are 2 challenges that this will work for: Pauline's Pretty Pink Posh Cutting Edge Blog Hop, and  the link party at PaperCrafts & Scrapbooking.

PPP Cutting Edge Blog Hop

supplies: Memory Box Grapevine Wreath, The Craft's Meow (retired) Christmas Lantern sentiment, Simon's Lipstick Red ink,  kraft card base, Basic Grey Aspen Frost birchbark paper, red gingham ribbon, red sequins from my friend Carol

The grapevine wreath is cut out twice and layered to make it thicker.  I bought 2 pads of these Aspen Frost papers last year just because of this particular paper, and I couldn't resist adding my little country checked ribbon.
