CCT May Colour Challenge - Yellow, gold and Kraft

I'd really like to have time to make a summery card but here I am with another Christmas Card. 

I liked the gold embossed on kraft that I used last week on my card so I wanted to make another one. This time I used a wreath stamp which came with Creative Stamping #35 magazine. 

It's quite detailed and could be coloured in all sorts of ways. 
My plan was to colour a tiny bit yellow, then I did another bit and another bit - you know how it goes. 
I used some gold washi tape for the frame. 
Unfortunately the card won't lie flat so I might have to cut the front off and remount it. 
It was really hard to photograph and looked different in every picture but I hope you get the idea. 

Our current challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown runs for one  more week so you have time to use these lovely colours.

Thanks for visiting, enjoy the day. x

Oops I forgot to link to May Rudolf Days challenge. Link up a Christmas card between the 25th and the end of each month to celebrate Rudolf days and get your Christmas card stash growing.
