Seasonal Wreath

Hi, everyone!
Recently, the ScrapStampArt Tour came through Greenville, and I picked up BUNCHES of new dies to play with! Today is a typical fall day: not too hot, not too cold. It's a little grey outside, with a few instances of sun peeking through the clouds, so it's one of my favorite times to craft the day away! :0)
I pulled out this great Impression Obsession die, Twig Wreath, to play with. I saw a post the other day from Shirley Ross, the Impression Obsession DT Coordinator. She used this for a winter card and was my inspiration for the ribbon threading with this die. She did some cool stuff to emboss her bg paper with a die, rather than cut, which I will try another day, too. :0)
Here's my card
