Joyeux Noel Card

Hi guys! A quick share..I have exactly 1 million things to do today! I made this card for the Shabby Tea Room challenge.
I finally got my hands on a Grand Calibur die cutting machine on clearance at HSN last week. I ADORE that thing! I was using a Sizzix Big Kick to cut my Spellbinders and I was never able to get a good,deep emboss. The Grand Calibur whips through like a dream and gives me the look that is intended for these awesome dies.
Here is this week's inspiration picture:
How pretty! We were to use pinks,neutrals,gold,snowflakes and flowers. I can't believe I managed to get them all on!
card stock,sentiment stamp,flowers,pearls-Recollections
patterned paper- Anna Griffin
die cuts-Spellbinders (grand labels one, fleur de lis accents,snowflakes)
resin wreath-Melissa Frances (colored with Tarnished Brass Crackle paint,buttercup Liquid Pearls  by Ranger)
seam binding- my stash
