A Christmas Wreath

For this card I've used a Fred, She Said pre-colored digital image.  It came out so wonderfully bright from my printer (I don't have the best printer either).  I made the little poinsettia with another FSS digi set and colored the flowers and the leaves with distress inks.  I used the same Fired Brick Distress ink to color some white seam binding.  Theres a little punch work and a lot of stitching. :)  Hope you like it!
