Christmas All Year Long--April

Time sure flies! It's time for the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop again! You should have arrived here from Charlene Randall's blog--but if you've stumbled upon my blog by happy accident and would like to start at the beginning, please go to Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog. I just know you won't want to miss a single one of these fabulous cards!
Tilda wanted me to go with a decidedly "green" theme this month, in honor of Earth Day, so we're decorating with the "greens"--evergreen and holly! I've really gotten into layering punches, so the little garland (detail below) mimics the background paper.
Many many thanks to Diana, who owns the Magnolia-licious Store, and to Deb, who runs the Magnolia-licious Yahoo group, for keeping us up-to-date on what's new and available in the Land of Magnolia.
Your next stop on the blog hop is the very talented Jenn Koss--her cards are amazing!
Your comments are precious to me--please let me know what you think of this card!
Supplies: Stamps--Jolly Wreath Tilda (Magnolia), and sentiment by Studio G (Series 37); Paper--Georgia-Pacific (white), Prism (dark green), designer paper (Holly Argyle by ProvoCraft), gold (MirroCard); Punches--branch and lattice (Martha Stewart), and holly leaf (Punch Bunch), and Sizzlits Lots of Tags Label 1 (Sizzix/Stampin'Up!); Ribbon--Offray; Stickles (CandyCane and Stardust); Nailheads (Metal Stickers, red); and Copics as shown below--

I also really like the way you layered the twig, leaf and holly punches. It looks like they are attached to a real trellis on the side of your house. Nice work.
