Following my knee surgery on Friday last, I am hobbling around, but it's not too painful thankfully. I didn't enjoy changing the dressings however, as there was some sticky stuff rather close to the incision site and  my skin hurt more than the joint when I was removing it. Loads of surgical spirit was needed! Thanks to everyone for your good wishes.
This card is for the challenge at CAS Christmas

It's funny but if I get an idea into my head I really have to go for it and after wanting to do something like this, I realised that I didn't have a 'joy' die which was either the right style or dimensions for what I had in mind. So I made this on my Silhouette. I cut out two and stacked them before embossing with a layer of Gold Twinkle embossing powder then a layer of UTEE. It's mounted on dimensional pads.
The die cut wreath is a stack of three cuts twinkled with Glamour Dust. A simple de-bossed frame finished it off!
